STAY SAFE. STAY SANE. GET OUTSIDE.

WHAT WE’RE DOING TO ENSURE A SAFE GETAWAY

A letter from our team

To our valued campers, it is our goal to offer you some much needed rest and relaxation during this trying time. Camping in the great outdoors is one of the safest activities to do right now, and we’re so glad we’re able to provide families with a place to make long-lasting memories! Here at Westward Shores, we are doing everything we can to provide our campers with a safe stay that is still full of fun! To help keep our campers and staff members safe, we have enhanced sanitation measures that include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of areas throughout the entire Camp-Resort. To ensure our campers have the best vacation ever, we have a variety of available attractions and activities to keep our campers entertained, while staying safe, from dawn to dusk. We look forward to welcoming you!

The Westward Shores Team


Before your arrival

  • To promote as little contact as possible during check-in, campers will receive a “It’s Time to Check-In” email the day before arrival to agree to the Terms & Conditions and make any final payments online. If you are a future arrival, you may complete these items in advance by locating the email titled, “Your Campspot Reservation Confirmation” and navigating to your confirmation link.
  • Look out for an email from our team titled “Your Upcoming Stay Information!” In this email you will have more current information regarding your stay. You’ll read about modifications at the resort due to COVID-19, get information on what fun scheduled activities are available, and other helpful information for your stay.
  • If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, do not come.
  • In addition to your regular packing list, bring all your own sports equipment (basketballs, volleyball, tennis racquet/balls, gaga ball, fishing poles, etc.), pack hand sanitizer and other cleaning equipment, a mask (this is required to enter our Marina Market), s’more ingredients, and anything else to help you have a safe and fun vacation.
  • Talk to your kids about social distancing.
  • Download campersApp prior to your arrival. With the app, you’ll be able to check out the most up-to-date activity information, receive text alerts about events happening around the Camp-Resort, and more! Psst…once you’ve downloaded the app, click on the map pin to access our information!


At check-in

  • Upon arrival, please proceed to our Gatehouse to check-in. You will receive wristbands for everyone in your group (please wear these at all times so we know who our registered campers are) and a car pass for your vehicles. Visit our Guest Dashboard for up-to-date info on hour of operation, daily activities, on-site dining, and more!
  • Maintain social distancing with our staff and follow guidelines as they help you to your cottage or campsite. We appreciate your patience as we help everyone through check-in as quickly and safely as possible.
  • If you have rented a golf cart for your stay, the staff member will assist you in picking one up.


During your stay

Though we are very excited to welcome you to our Camp-Resort to enjoy the great outdoors, we ask that you please do your part to help keep everyone (fellow campers, and our staff) safe. Here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of 6-feet from anyone not in your group.
  • All guests are encouraged to wear masks when entering any public building for the safety of our staff and other campers.
  • Wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer dispensers located throughout the Camp-Resort.
  • Forget something? We have supplies available for purchase at our Marina Market such as masks, hand sanitizer, bandanas, and much more!

According to the CDC and the National Safety Council, and the WHO:
  • Wash your hands often – and thoroughly – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content is a good secondary option
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others in a public setting
  • If you are in a private setting and do not have your face cloth covering, remember to always cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with others especially those that are at a higher risk of getting very sick
  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

Stay informed

For more detailed information about COVID-19, how it spreads, prevention and treatment, learn more here.

Also, the CDC has updated their country index page where you can find up-to-date COVID-19 risk assessments by country.


As more information becomes available, we will continue to make adjustments to support the safety and well-being of guests and our team members.

It’s important to know, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk from COVID‑19. A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place, including Westward Shores.

Stay sane. Get outside.
