Frequently asked questions:
What should I do if severe weather occurs when camping?
If a weather emergency occurs, the National Weather Service recommends campers seek shelter in a substantial building or hard-topped vehicle and wait for 30 minutes after the storm before resuming activities. NWS does not advise remaining in tents, campers, pop-up trailers, or other similar camp units during severe weather. Learn more about becoming a weather-ready camper at www.weather.gov.
Will the fairgrounds be policing campgrounds for social spacing and group size compliance by the public?
Yes. We are currently allowing up to eight people per campsite, and in order to protect public health, we all need to do our part to recreate responsibly. The fairgrounds will monitor sites for compliance with the directed health measures set forth by statewide health directives for the safety of the public.
Are restroom facilities open?
No, all our restroom facilities will remain closed through our 2020 camping season.
Health and safety
We know that cleanliness is more important than ever right now. We’re taking guidance from the CDC, which recommends regular cleaning as one of the most important preventive measures we can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are cleaning our facilities regularly, focusing on high-touch and high-traffic surfaces such as doors and door handles, bathroom surfaces, handrails and light switches.
We also recommend our guests take precautions recommended by the CDC, including social distancing even in outdoors spaces. Any person who is sick, has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, or has been exposed to sick individuals, should remain at home. Please also use thoughtful consideration regarding your public attendance and group interactions.
We ask our guests to do their part to keep our communities safe from the spread of the coronavirus. We recommend people follow these tips to recreate responsibly:
- Stay up-to-date with all local, state and federal advisories.
- Maintain at least a 6-foot distance from other guests.
- Engage in recreational activities only with members of your household.
- Stick to low-risk activities to reduce stress on local emergency response and health care systems.
- Pack — and use — hand sanitizer often.
- If you are sick, or have been exposed to someone who is sick with COVID-19, stay home.
- Leave no trace: Pack up everything you bring with you.
