COVID-19 Response: Modified Charlottenburgh Park Operations

 

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is pleased to welcome the community back to Charlottenburgh Park for the 2020 season!  Our top priority is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our visitors and staff in these challenging times. 

As of June 12, 2020, we welcomed seasonal-permit holder back to our campground and as of June 26, we opened the Park for day-use admission (including beach access) and transient camping.  Day-use admission will be offered at reduced capacity to limit the potential of over-crowding.  Admission will be first-come, first-served.  We will post on our Facebook page once the beach is at capacity for the day.

MASKS: As ordered by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, visitors are required to wear a mask when entering any of the RRCA's enclosed public facilities (unless they are exempt).  At Charlottenburgh Park, this includes: gatehouse, washrooms, and shower facilities.  

Available amenities:

  • Seasonal and transient camping (Note: Camping walk-ins will not be accepted; book online)  
  • Beach (Note: Seasonal Park passes for day-use admission will not be offered this year as a reduced visitation capacity will be in place.)

COVID-19 Precautionary Measures

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the following precautionary measures are in place:

  • Visitors will be asked the following questions at check-in upon arrival to ensure the safety of others:
    1. In the past 14 days, have you been outside the country? Have you been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? 
    2. Have you been advised by a doctor, healthcare provider, or any public health authority to stay home or otherwise avoid contact with others? 
    3. Have you had a fever, coughing, shortness of breath, or other respiratory symptoms associated with COVID-19?
  • As ordered by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, visitors are required to wear a mask when entering any of the RRCA's enclosed public facilities (unless they are exempt).  At Charlottenburgh Park, this includes: gatehouse, washrooms, and shower facilities. 
  • Visitors are asked to bring their own personal protective equipment: gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant cleaning products.
  • Only one visitor permitted in Park gatehouse at one time; hand sanitizer must be used upon entry.
  • Enhanced cleaning practices of gatehouse, showers, and washroom facilities are in place.
  • Visitors must follow COVID-19 directives from public health officials, such as ensuring a 2-metre distance from others and to stay home if they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms.
