Our Commitment of Sanitizing during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) 

With the onset of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) within the United States, we are focused on how to combat the possibility of transmission to others.

Public Health and Safety has always been our primary objective. While we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facilities, we are taking extra measures and increasing the frequency of sanitizing all community areas. After researching with the CDC and our equipment vendors, increased cleaning/sanitizing protocols will be implemented with all common areas including, but not limited to:

  - The bathhouse; high touch areas: toilets, sinks, showers, all fixtures, doors, latches, dispensers, benches, handrails and 
  changing station.  
  - The store/office: counters, doors, pens/pencils, coolers and freezers, seating area, etc.
  - The recreation center: tables and chairs, light switches, countertops, toys, hand rails and equipment.
  - The playground: slides, hand rails, swings and teeter-totters.
  - The cabins: mattresses, appliances, lighting, tables & chairs, doors & windows, floors, picnic tables, and grills.

Here are some things to consider:

  - The CDC is recommending social distancing of 6' away from others.
  - This virus has symptoms that mimic numerous other diseases including seasonal allergies.

The campground, with its expansiveness and fresh air environment lends itself to the likelihood of a pleasant stay with minimal worry. As well, we offer non-GMO water in the lake and Gluten free air for everyone to enjoy! We will remain open and diligent with monitoring this situation and take positive measures to ensure the health and well-being of our guests. Our commitment is for our guests to "Catch The Fun!", not the virus!

Coronavirus Update

Thank You to the people that are on the front lines for their conviction and resilience during these unprecedented times. We are humbled and truly appreciative of your selfless acts.

We understand the imposed guidelines to stay home is testing everyone's patience. We also understand the need to adhere to these guidelines. The campground has delayed opening until June 12th, tentatively. While we are saddened by the fact that we cannot see the smiling faces of our guests or hear the squeals of glee from the children, we are encouraged by the positive steps forward in controlling the virus.

Upon our initial opening for the season there will be temporary limitations within the campground:
  • Camping in self-contained units only, unfortunately, no tents or camping cabins
  • The bathhouse, activity center and playground will be unavailable for use
  • Face masks will be required to enter the store with limited access
  • Social distancing is required throughout the campground

The priority of Bluegill Lake Family Camping Resort is for the safety and well-being our guests. The protocols in place will relax as we​ progress thru the season. We will keep you updated.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
