Still no tent camping but campers with trailers who have self contained camping units with functioning washrooms are now allowed to camp overnight at the various sites at Long Point Conservation.
LONG POINT - Today is the day that campers have been waiting for.
Overnight camping will return to two Long Point Region Conservation Authority campgrounds for self-contained camping units with functioning washrooms only.
The Backus Heritage Conservation Area and Waterford North Conservation Area are opening for overnight camping to self-contained camping units that have functioning washrooms and water facilities.
A limited number of campsites will be available for booking at each park and there is still no tent camping. The reservation system is officially up and running with sites available to be booked for dates between July 10 and October 14.
To reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 only a select number of sites will be available at each campground to ensure adequate spacing between visitors.
Additionally, there are no on-site washrooms available for campers, which is why both seasonal and overnight campers are required to use camping units with functional bathrooms and water facilities. Certain other amenities, such as park shower facilities, laundry units, pavilions and the Backus swimming pool will also remain closed for the season.
Deer Creek Conservation area, Norfolk Conservation Area and Haldimand Conservation Area will not be opening for overnight camping this year.
LPRCA can also confirm that online reservations for day-use access to Deer Creek Conservation Area, Backus Heritage Conservation Area and Waterford North Conservation Area will also soon be available. Pre-registration will be required for day-use.
The reservation system is accessed online.
