COVID-19 Update


Dear Guest,

We will be opening June 1st for recreational camping for RV’s and Cabin rental. We are not allowing tents at this time. We will have limited bathhouse facilities that will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the day from 8am – 7pm but after 7pm, they are to be used at your own risk.

As of June 1st the store will open at 9am and close at 9pm with a one hour lunch closing from 1 to 2 pm. Also direct access to the store will not be allowed, the door will be locked, and all transactions will take place at the walk up window next to the ice machine. This window will be used for all transactions to include but not limited to: registration and store sales. We will continue to fill LP tanks but ask the guest to stay clear of the gloved employee. If you need to make an in store purchase, renew, or pay for a service most things can be done over the phone or at the window or by delivery to your site. If you come to our walk up window you still may need to communicate by phone. For the duration of this change we request all payments by credit card to minimize the handling of currency. Staff will input the card information without taking possession of the card. All receipts will be emailed (no paper). These changes are meant to limit the person to person contact that can spread the virus. The state of IL is requiring the use of masks in all public areas (your site is consider private). Laundry areas will be open but we will not be providing additional cleanings so use at your own risk.

Our goal has always been to provide you with the best and most memorable camping experiences, so we hope you can continue enjoying the park now and well into the future. Welcome back!!

Thanks for your understanding
