COVID-19 Information

We are currently enacting action plans for safe operation of our park during these challenging times. Conditions are changing and we are adjusting our policies and procedures as new information and orders are released by government and public health officials.  

We understand you may have many questions about your upcoming visit to River View and what that visit might end up looking like. The fact of the matter is, it is too soon to tell exactly what restrictions or limitations might be in place at the time of your visit. We do however want to provide some information as to the steps we are implementing early in the season upon opening, as well as our plans if conditions remain challenging. Our goal is to meet or exceed your expectations for sanitation and a safe experience during your stay. We reserve the right to modify these policies as conditions change.

Face Coverings:
You will be required to bring and wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces as recommended by the local health department. This includes our store, restrooms or to ride on our river trip transportation buses. Generally, our bus rides are 10 minutes or less. We realize not everyone is on the same page when it comes to face coverings, but to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety this will be a mandatory requirement until such time as it is not advised by health officials.

Check-In Procedures:
Upon arriving to the park there will be a limit of 1 person per vehicle permitted to enter the store and check in everyone in the vehicle. Also, there will be a limit of how many people are allowed in the store at one time. To promote low contact and to expedite check-in, we strongly encourage all guests to pre-pay for their camping, cabin rental and river trip fees online or over the phone well ahead of their arrival.

River Trips:
We are planning to run river trips providing there are no new restrictions put in place. We encourage you to keep distance away from others while floating the river, but trust that you will take whatever steps you feel are needed to feel comfortable on your trip. A sanitization station will be available to allow you to spray disinfecting solution on your tube, kayak or canoe prior to your trip if you wish to take that precaution. River trip equipment will be rotated to allow for “quarantine” time-out, so boats and tubes will be isolated for several days prior to use.   

The maximum capacity of our buses will be reduced while conditions warrant. Reduced bus capacity will impact our trip departure scheduling. Tube trips will depart earlier in the day with canoe/kayak trips departing either in the early morning or later in the day. accommodate will be made for groups having a mix of river equipment. We appreciate your understanding that your departure time may be later than usual this year. We're extending the 6pm river curfew to accommodate later departure times.

Campers will be encouraged to keep a safe reasonable distance away from others that are not in their immediate family or from the same household.  There is plenty of room on our 160 acres to spread yourselves out.  Perhaps instead of 1 fire pit for the group, you spread out across your reserved sites. Please do not visit neighboring campsites with people who are not part of your group without permission.

Unless directed otherwise by the health department, we are planning to have all of our bathroom and shower facilities open and available for use for guests. We will be taking additional cleaning measures and increasing the frequency of cleaning each facility. A cleaning schedule checklist will be displayed. During the overnight hours, there will be a partial closing of each facility to be cleaned, sanitized and ready for the next mornings early bathroom rush. Each bathroom has a sink and hand soap available for hand washing. Hand sanitizer dispensers will be located outside of each restroom facility so you can sanitize your hands after coming in contact with door handles. Outhouses (pit toilets) will be available, as always each is equipped with a hand sanitizer dispenser outside.

Camp Store/Registration Office:
Our campground store/registration office will be open. There will be a 10 person maximum in the store at one time. 6 feet social distancing will need to be maintained at all times. Plexiglass screens have been installed between our staff and customers. 

We are also please to announce a online Camp Store option to purchase items from the store available for pick up or delivered to your campsite for a delivery fee. The Camp Store will be accessible via the internet to purchase items such as wood, marshmallows, ice, etc. from your campsite without the need to step foot in our store.

Playgrounds will remain open providing there is no order from the health department to close them. Playground facilities will be sprayed with sanitizing solution every 3 hours during daylight hours. We trust parents will make the proper determination for their family if they feel comfortable using playground equipment. 

Recreation Center / Game Room:
This facility will be open, with additional cleaning procedures in place.

Bottle Return:
We will not be accepting bottle returns until conditions allow for it to resume. We encourage you to keep your returnables and bring them home so you can return them once it is acceptable to do so at your local bottle return location.

We will provide updates should there be any changes in our activities or policies.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via email, our contact us page, Facebook or via telephone at 989-654-2447.

Stay safe and well,

All of us at River View Campground & Canoe Livery
