We are Opening this Friday, May 15th!
Greetings New River Family and Friends!
We are very excited to announce that we will be OPENING for our 2020 Season this Friday, May 15th at 9:00 a.m. and will begin taking reservations at that time!
Our opening will be a little different this year in accordance with the Virginia Phase 1 Reopening Guidelines as a result of COVID-19. These are the guidelines that we will all need to abide by for the safety of our customers and staff and we ask for everyone's cooperation in working together during this challenging time. The guidelines are as follows:
NUMBER SIXTY-ONE (2020) AND ORDER OF PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY THREE
Campgrounds Effective 12:00 a.m., Friday, May 15, 2020, privately-owned campgrounds, as defined in § 35.1-1 of the Code of Virginia may reopen, provided they comply with the Guidelines for All Business Sectors and the sector-specific guidelines for campgrounds, which are expressly incorporated by reference herein. Such guidance includes, but is not limited to, the following requirements:
a. A minimum of 20 feet must be maintained between units for all lots rented for short-term stays of less than 14 nights (and not owned by individuals).
b. Employees working in public-facing areas are required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth at all times.
c. It is recommended that campgrounds must strongly encourage customers to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth.
d. The provision of hand washing in bath houses and sanitizing stations for guests and employees.
e. If any such business cannot adhere to these requirements, it must close.
Due to social distancing guidelines, for our River Trips, our Shuttle Service will not currently be able to transport people, but we are still able to shuttle canoes, kayaks, and tubes to our put in points upriver. Our customers will need to follow our shuttles to the put in point and we will be happy to work with you to retrieve your vehicle later. There should be adequate parking for everyone at the drop lots.
We look forward to a great season and are thrilled to have everyone back for another wonderful year here on the New!
