Lake Meyer Campground to Open May 15
Lake Meyer Campground will open for camping on Friday, May 15th.
Changes to campground operation, rules, and regulations will be in effect during the COVID-19 health emergency. These changes include:
- Only self-contained units (those with internal water and restroom facilities) are allowed. No tents.
- Some campsites will be closed to ensure proper social distancing.
- Campsites will operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. Campers must self-register.
- All restrooms, playgrounds, and shelters remain closed until further notice.
A full list of adjusted policies is available on www.winneshiekwild.com. All policies are subject to change.
In accordance with state COVID-19 recommendations, all park visitors and campers are encouraged to practice social distancing by maintaining six feet between individuals. Campsites are to be occupied by those from an immediate family/household only. Groups should not exceed ten people. Campers are encouraged not to intermingle between campsites. These restrictions and guidelines will remain in place beyond when all campsites reopen.
Visitors are asked to stay home if you feel sick, wash your hands regularly, avoid touching your face, and bring supplies from home including disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and other hygiene products.
Winneshiek County Conservation properties remain open for day use, including parks, trails, river/lake access points, boat ramps, shorelines, and natural areas.
