Conflicting advice?

Remember that science is not facts, science is learning.

And scientists learn more about coronavirus and its variants every day. They’ll learn even more tomorrow.

Until they give the “all-clear” signal, we should…

  • Wear a mask in public to protect yourself and others 
  • Maintain social distancing to reduce exposure to the virus
  • Wash your hands often to protect yourself and your family
  • Get vaccinated as soon as we can

Campground Safety

  • Use the bathroom in your camper, if you have one
  • Keep six feet between you and other campers

  • Limit groups to 10 or fewer
  • Dispose of trash in dumpsters
  • Avoid using campground laundry facilities
  • Do not touch other campers’ laundry
