Covid-19 Response Plan as of June 15, 2020

   We have elected to continue with the long-term stay model to help us keep up with the additional cleaning and
   sanitizing required during Covid-19. Seasonal and monthly stays may be booked at this time.  
   All camping must be with self-contained units on lots with power and water hook-ups.
   Recreation areas where you can use your own equipment (mini-golf, horseshoes, volleyball, badminton for example) and       playgrounds are now open. Parents are responsible for making sure their children wash and/or sanitize before and after       play and that they maintain a two metre  "play away" distance. 
   The laundry room is open to one user at a time.
​   Starting on Thursday June 18 our showers and washrooms will have one toilet, one shower and one sink open in each             section. Our single-seater outhouse is already open.
   There is a dumpster for garbage generated while here. Some of our garbage cans, and the recycling centre will be in             place for June 18. Our take-it-or-leave-it shed will remain closed. 
   Our store will continue to sell wood, limited RV supplies and propane in tanks.
   We will not be carrying ice or food items this year.


   Campers are provided with appropriate information about COVID-19 prevention measures and precautions 
   both at the gate during check-in and check-out and through the use of signage throughout the campgrounds.
   We have sanitizer available 24 hours per day at several locations within the campground. 

   Recommended: Social/physical distancing directly from AHS 
    Members of an expanded cohort are able to visit and go in and out of their friend's and family's trailer while the owner is      there. At this point we are asking for day visits only (no overnight stays) and one carload at a time.
    A written log of all visitors and their contact information is to be maintained by the trailer's owner and be made                  available to AHS on request to assist with contact tracing if required. 
    You (and your dog) may walk around the campground, but 2 meters "social distance" from other people is required.
    Provided there is no fire ban, and guests are abiding by the requirement to keep to groups of 6 people, fires would be          permitted. 
    Campground operators must offer camper contact-free registration options.
​   
    Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.  
    Please check back frequently for other changes as Alberta continues to re-open. ​


Covid-19 Response Plan as of May 2020

   We have elected to continue with the long-term stay model to help us keep up with the additional cleaning and
   sanitizing required during Covid-19. Seasonal and monthly stays may be booked at this time.  
   All camping must be with self-contained units on lots with power and water hook-ups.
   Recreation areas where you can use your own equipment (mini-golf, horseshoes, volleyball, badminton for example) and       playgrounds are now open. Parents are responsible for making sure their children wash and/or sanitize before and after       play and that they maintain a two metre  "play away" distance. 
   The laundry room is open to one user at a time. Showers and washrooms except for one single-seater outhouse are closed.
   There is a dumpster for garbage generated while here, the recycling and take-it-or-leave-it sheds are closed. 

   We are still being advised to limit campground capacity.
   Campers are provided with appropriate information about COVID-19 prevention measures and precautions 
   both at the gate during check-in and check-out and through the use of signage throughout the campgrounds.
   We have sanitizer available 24 hours per day at several locations within the campground. 


   Recommended: Social/physical distancing directly from AHS 
   Sites should be at least 30 feet wide. Exceptions may be made for seasonal and long-term stays. 
   Only people with the same address should be in one trailer. A written log of all people and their contact information is to     be maintained and available. As no-one is allowed in each other's trailers and washrooms are closed, this essentially             means no visitors to seasonals or campers. This includes both day and/or overnight visitors. 
   You (and your dog) may walk around the campground, but 2 meters "social distance" from other people is required.
   Provided there is no fire ban, and guests are abiding by the requirement to keep to groups of 6 people, fires would be           permitted.

   Campground operators must offer camper contact-free registration options.

Covid-19 Response Plan as of April 16 2020

  Hello all,
  It has been a couple of interesting weeks here with ever-changing information regarding the opening and running of         campgrounds during the Covid 19 crisis.  These guidelines can change at any time as well so be prepared for more updates.

  Guidelines for Opening and Operating a Private Campground in Alberta in spring (and maybe summer) of 2020
  FROM AHS
  Only facilities that "offer long-term accommodation for users (greater than four weeks) or where the site is the user's     primary accommodation are being recommended to remain open", AHS says. "Campgrounds that choose to remain open     would be expected to implement strict control measures to prevent COVID-19 spread."

  WE RECOMMEND THAT ALBERTA CAMPGROUNDS UNDERTAKE THE FOLLOWING: 
  (I have paraphrased for clarity as it pertains to Eagle Lake RV Resort)

  Serviced camping only, units must have their own toilet and shower facilities.
​  The park's water system needs to be up and running. 

  No unserviced or tent camping. 

  Playgrounds, the mini-golf and other recreation areas that use shared equipment provided by the campground
  need to be  closed. 

  All stand-alone comfort-stations (washrooms and showers and laundry) should be closed.
  Park entrance should be secured by a physical barrier when not staffed by an attendant.
  Campers need to put their own garbage into the dumpster provided by park management. There are to be no collection       services. No recycling except returnables. No take-it-or-leave-it.
 Limit Campground Capacity.

 Campers should be provided with appropriate information about COVID-19 prevention measures and precautions
 both at the gate during check-in and check-out and through the use of signage throughout the campgrounds.


  Recommended: Social/physical distancing
 Sites should be at least 30 feet wide. Exceptions may be made for seassonal and long-term stays. 
 No visitors to seasonals or campers. This includes both day and/or overnight visitors. 
 Campground operators must offer camper contact-free registration options.
 You (and your dog) may walk around the campground, but 2 meters "social distance" is required.
 Provided there is no fire ban, and guests are abiding by the requirement to keep to groups of less than 5 individuals who all   live in the same household, fires would be permitted.

 Additionally, we will not be running programs, some recreation areas or the store (except for pre-ordered wood and   propane) for the foreseeable future.
 So basically, we can open to seasonals and monthlies, once the water is on. Only serviced camping is allowed and all units   must be self-contained. We must keep showers and washrooms and laundry locked. You must be able to empty your own   sewer and use our dump-station or purchase the pump-out option so we can do it for you.
 As it takes several days to turn on and test the water, I am saying that we will be open to our serviced seasonals and pre-   registered monthlies starting Friday May 8 (barring changes in the guidelines). If we can open to you earlier we will, but   we should be able to meet these requirements by May 8.


 Thank you for your patience and understanding during the challenging times.
