Lee County Conservation will begin opening their campgrounds beginning May 8.
The campgrounds at Wilson Lake and Pollmiller Park will open Friday, May 8th at 6:00 a.m., but camping spots will be limited to ensure proper social distancing can be maintained. The campground at Chatfield Park will reopen on Thursday, May 14th, at 6:00 a.m., with some sites being closed to ensure proper social distancing. Campsites will operate on a first-come-first-serve basis until Monday, May 18th. On May 18th, all campsites will reopen, and reservations will be allowed again. All restrooms, cabins, and shelters will remain closed during this time and will continue to be closed until further notice.
All park visitors and campers are encouraged to practice social distancing by maintaining six feet between them and others. Campsites are to be occupied by those from an immediate family/household only. Groups should not exceed ten people. Campers are encouraged not to intermingle between campsites. These restrictions and guidelines will remain in place beyond when all campsites reopen.
Campers and all other park users are highly encouraged to follow all of the social distancing recommendations provided by health agencies. The Lee County Conservation Board, under the advisement of the Lee County Public Health Board, reserves the right to alter its operations if safety guidelines are not being followed or are unable to be maintained.
