Long Point Region Conservation Authority Camping Status UpdateApril 15, 2021
Seasonal Camping begins May 1, nightly camping and day-use access currently on hold
Long Point Region Conservation Authority’s camping season is approaching quickly but elements of the season are impacted by the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-Home Order enacted on April 8. Seasonal camping will begin as planned on May 1, 2021 but nightly camping and day-use access to LPRCA’s campgrounds is prohibited while the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-Home Order is in effect.
The provincial restrictions currently in place permit camping on sites secured with a full season contract. Therefore, seasonal campers with LPRCA are permitted to access and use their seasonal sites beginning May 1. Please note that seasonal campers must have their paperwork and payments processed through the Administration Office before they may access their site, paperwork and payment will not be accepted at park gatehouses. Please contact the Administration Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-842-4242 if you have not yet completed your seasonal registration.
Nightly camping is not permitted under the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-Home Order. With the restrictions extending into the beginning of May, nightly campsite reservations for the start of our operating season are impacted. Reservation holders for this time period will be notified that their reservation has been cancelled and refunds will be issued automatically through the online reservation system.
Under the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-Home order, campgrounds must be closed to the public. This means LPRCA’s Conservation Areas with campgrounds – Backus Heritage, Deer Creek, Haldimand, Norfolk and Waterford North Conservation Areas – are fully closed to day-use.
Long Point Region Conservation Authority will continue to monitor and follow the latest information from the government and health authorities and will resume nightly camping and day-use access to our campgrounds when it is deemed safe to do so. Updates and changes to offered services will be posted to our website and social media accounts.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we work together to keep our communities safe.
