· 50 swimmers are allowed. Please do your best to maintain a 6' distance from others not in your family in the water or on the beach itself.  
·   If we find that there are more than 50 wanting to swim at the same time, our lifeguards will clear the water and allow another group of 50 to swim. We will maintain this rotation every hour.

What can I do to help?
  • Covid19 hasn't gone away. We urge our campers to continue to be diligent with hand washing, wearing a mask when social distancing is not possible, and following CDC guidelines. We all must take personal responsibility for reducing the risk of spreading or aquiring the virus.
  • If you or any of your family members are sick or experiencing symptoms consistent with the Covid19 virus do not come to Fish Lake Beach.
  • Gatherings at your campsite may not have more than 10 people.
  • Separately, please do not flush these in your RV toilet or any toilet on the property: disinfecting wipes, baby wipes, personal hygiene wipes, cleaning wipes or wipes of any kind, including wipes labeled ‘flushable’. Wipes cannot be processed by our septic systems and end up damaging pumps and tanks. Also, if you’re camping in an RV, please use biodegradable RV toilet paper for that same reason. If our pumps break down our staff has to repair them and turn off water and sewer systems during that process for a lengthy period.
