Conservation Areas Update – LPRCA monitoring COVID-19 situation, will assess Conservation Area opening date

March 27, 2020

Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LPRCA) is following the evolving situation with COVID-19 closely. We take the health and safety of our customers and staff seriously. As the situation with COVID19 continues to unfold we will be evaluating the necessity to delay the opening of our Conservation Areas. Updates will be posted to the LPRCA website and social media feeds. Any delay will also be communicated to our seasonal campers through email and phone. If you are a seasonal camper with LPRCA please ensure we have up-to-date contact information. You can reach us at or by phone at 519-586-2201 ext. 221.

Haldimand County Campgrounds

On March 25, Haldimand County issued an order permitting seasonal trailer parks to open earlier than usual to accommodate residents returning to Haldimand after wintering abroad. These temporary measures are to provide self-isolation accommodations to those who use seasonal trailer parks as their primary Canadian residences. As LPRCA seasonal sites are not primary residences, LPRCA will not be opening the Haldimand Conservation Area campsite early.

At this time, LPRCA facilities including Backus Heritage Conservation Area, Deer Creek Conservation Area, Haldimand Conservation Area, Norfolk Conservation Area and Waterford North Conservation Area remain closed. We thank you for your patience during these difficult times.
