LPRCA Campgrounds: May 1 Opening Date Delayed

April 16, 2020

Long Point Region Conservation Authority is delaying the May 1 opening date for all LPRCA campgrounds.

LPRCA is committed to the health and safety of the public and our staff. We are making the decision to delay the opening date to protect public health and are doing so as recommended by public health authorities. On April 3, 2020, the Ontario Government amended their list of essential workplaces and ordered seasonal trailer parks and recreational campgrounds closed as of 11:59 p.m. on April 4.

To help limit the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure that visitors to LPRCA campgrounds have the best possible experience when it is safe to reopen, LPRCA has made the decision to postpone the opening date. LPRCA will continue to monitor the public health emergency and determine a point when LPRCA properties can reopen. Further updates will be posted to the LRPCA website and social media accounts.

At this time, payment deadlines for seasonal campsites have been deferred. Campers with seasonal sites at LPRCA campgrounds are being contacted by email with further information. Those who have made overnight campsite bookings are also being contacted by email to be notified that their booking will be cancelled and a refund will be issued automatically. The overnight booking cancellations are currently operating on a rolling two-week schedule as we evaluate prospective opening dates. This means that overnight bookings scheduled for
later in the season are not being cancelled at this time and campers will be contacted directly as the situation progresses.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Brandon Good, Superintendent of Conservation Areas, at 519-586-2201 ext. 221 or
