Dear Cherry Ridge Camper:

We are happy to be able to open the campground this season with the evolving COVID-19 pandemic all around us. As we are doing our best to navigate thru these uncertain times, we welcome our guests to have a fun and safe stay with us.

As we transition into the Yellow Phase on May 22, 2020, we still need to follow federal, state, and CDC guidelines. Please keep in mind that these guidelines are set to ensure the health and safety of our campers and employees. This is what you can expect during your stay:

  1. You must be practicing social distancing at all times while you are here, for your safety and the safety of those around you. Please keep 6 feet between you and others.
  2. We are sorry, but at this time no outside visitors are allowed at your site.
  3. Campfires are still safe, as long as you practice social distancing.

  6. You may fish at the lake. Social distancing required.
