Long-term campers are now welcome in the Rimbey Lions Nesting Place RV Park.
As of May 22 the campground started welcoming campers looking to stay for a week or more on a reservation basis.
Lori Hillis, Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Rimbey, said short-term camping is being played by ear while council decided to move ahead with long-term camping.
“The washrooms are closed and the gates are closed, so they have to call to make a reservation,” said Hillis of those looking to long-term camp at the RV park.
Those interested in camping at the park can call 403-704-6997 to register with an attendant as no self-registration will be allowed.
Payment must be made in advance and done through e-transfer or debit/credit. Cash with latex gloves will only be accepted as a last resort.
“Social and physical distancing of two meters is mandatory,” states the post, adding no visitors are allowed at your campsite.
Currently no tenting is allowed and campers must be in an RV to use their own amenities.
On top of the showers and washrooms in the park being closed so is the playground.
“Cover your picnic table with a table cloth” and “vehicles must be parked at the ball diamond parking lot” are also on the list of COVD-19 related guidelines.
Additionally, campers coming back into town from somewhere else can access the sani-dump site by reaching out to 403-704-6997.
The dump station, as well as water fill, require users to wear clean rubber gloves.
“AHS can change the guidelines and/or rules for camping 2020 at any time,” concludes the post.
