Hello, Seasonal Campers!
Thank goodness for melting snow and warmer temperatures. The enthusiasm for opening Fish Lake Beach is on the rise. At this time we're not ready to announce an official open date but we are able to share this good news.
On April 3rd the outer gates will be open for seasonal campers to check on their sites and begin site clean up. The water will not be on; no campfires or overnight stays will be permitted. There will be an attendant at the gatehouse. We'll post hours as soon as they are established.
We will be closed on Easter. For security purposes we are not allowing anyone to enter the property on Easter Sunday.
Our staff has been processing the registration for seasonals that have completed DocuSign, sent in supporting documents and making payments. If you have not began that process, please get started and completed as soon as possible.
MORE Good News! If you have never used DocuSign or need help filling out the registration forms please email email@example.com. Susan is here to help you with your questions. If you prefer her to call you, include your phone number in your email.
*The deadline for registration is March 31, 2021*
As of this date, only half of our seasonal campers have finished DocuSign and sent in supporting documents. Last year many seasonal campers waited until the last minute to register so we were flooded with registration activity. That caused delays, disappointment and stress for all. Expect it to take up to 2 weeks from the time you've finished registration for us to prepare your vehicle passes. We send out registration 1/29/21 to allow seasonals enough time to register so that you can get your vehicle passes when the season officially begins and start enjoying your happy place right away! :)
