Camper Code of Conduct 2020

Bear Ridge Campground & Cottages welcomes you back! Please read this Code of Conduct (the Code) and review it with all family members. The rules in this Code must be followed to ensure we all stay safe and do not engage in activities that contravene any Provincial or Federal Government regulations and ensure we comply with all health regulations.

This Code is over and above our normal campground rules, which still apply. Strict enforcement of all rules will be in place for all registered names on your occupancy agreement. Any camper, regardless of age who breaches this Code will be asked to leave the campground immediately and your Licence of Occupation will be cancelled immediately.

If you have a fever or flu-type symptoms, please stay home. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are a presumptive case, or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive or is a presumptive case, we request that you do not attempt to enter the campground. Please remain at your residence until you have been cleared by your local health department and/or you have finished your self-isolation of 14 days.

If you are returning from travel from outside of the Province of Ontario, do not plan to visit the campground for a period of 14 days, please remain home.

At this time, we will be operating under the following rules. These rules may change as the Ontario or Federal Government amends legislation.

Until further notice, only people whose names are listed on the License of Occupation will be permitted in Bear Ridge Campground & Cottages.

Common Areas
The following common areas are closed until further notice. All areas that are closed are indicated. If you are unsure whether something is closed or not, please contact the office for clarification.

Walking around Campground
At all times campers must obey social distancing rules as mandated by the Province of Ontario. Currently, you must stay 2 meters or 6 feet away from other campers. You may use walking trails if social distancing rules are followed.

Limit of People on a Campsite
Until such time as the Government of Ontario amends the number of people allowed to gather, we are limiting the number of people allowed on a campsite to only the people listed and permitted on that site.

Children and/or Under the age of 16
We expect that all parents will ensure their children will obey the rules 24/7. If your children cannot follow these rules, please do not bring them to the campground at this time.

Events and Activities that can be undertaken obeying all social distancing and gathering restrictions will only be run.

Golf Carts
