COVID-19 Info for Campground Operators
City/county municipal campground and private campgrounds can host overnight camping if they choose to do so. Camping is an activity that can be safe, as long as strict social distancing practices are observed, attention is given to keeping campsites of people from different households separated and extra attention and frequency given to restroom cleaning. Restrooms should remain open with signage that only one person should occupy the restroom at a time. Self-contained campers/RVs with water, restrooms and wastewater storage tanks are a good option for camping at this time and could be promoted. Campers that utilize seasonal or semi-permanent sites should be notified to self-distance and avoid socializing at campgrounds. Campers should be notified to not use the campground if they are sick or were exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
Opening of cabins at private campgrounds can also be considered, as long as ND Department of Health guidelines for lodging facilities are met. Cabin units must only be utilized by members of a single household, or pod.
