Here are Belle Ridge, we are taking all necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some people may find the actions we are taking to be a bit extreme, but we believe the protocols we are following to be the best possible practice. Listed below are the steps we are currently taking:

  • We are recommending guests communicate with us via phone or email as much as possible
  • Office door and windows are to remain open during business hours as much as possible to allow fresh air to circulate rather than depend on recirculated air through the HVAC system
  • No more than 3 guests will be allowed in the office at a given time
  • We are spot cleaning all common areas many times every day
  • We are sterilizing the office desk with bleach solution after each guest leaves
  • We have removed the requirement to sign the rules page so there is no need to transfer writing utensils
  • We have affixed the credit card reader to the desk outdoor reception window so guests do not need to hand their card to staff
  • We are sanitizing the bath house 5-6 times per day
  • We have closed cabins to all new reservations and are sanitizing all surfaces when existing guests check out of cabins
  • We are recommending all guests follow CDC guidelines regarding group size limitations
  • We are preventing all group based events from taking place on our property
  • We are putting up notices in the office and bath house that request certain things from guests, for example, to please be patient and work with us as we will have staff in the bath house much more often than usual to clean and sterilize, and to please wash your hands when exiting a rest room
  • If any staff exibits any symptoms of being sick at all, or lives with someone that is sick, they will take off work. They will receive paid sick leave at 100% their normal pay rate
  • If we become understaffed, we may have to adjust office hours. We are prepared with the following schedule:
    • Open office from 8am to 9am to create packets for guests checking in that day
    • Tape packets for each guest to the office door
    • Open office again from 4pm to 5pm, or any other time slot we deem necessary
    • Even if the office is closed, we will continue to take phone calls, answer emails and make reservations
    • * We have not needed to take these actions yet as no staff at Belle Ridge has tested positive for Covid-19 or become sick *



We cannot create the most appropriate guidelines for you. But we request that you treat our facility as if it has not been sanitized. Thinking in this fashion can certainly only help to prevent the spread even beyond the actions we can take.

  • Open door knobs/handles with tissue or a piece of clothing
  • Open and close your water hydrant with a tissue or piece of clothing
  • If you are of those most likely to exibit the most extreme symptoms (65+ years old, preexisting heart condition, immunocompromized, etc) please remain in your RV or home as much as possible
  • Follow CDC guidelines regarding how to prevent spreading or contracting the virus
  • Please be patient with us as our rules, regulations, and protocols may change as new information arrises
  • If you feel it would be best to cancel your reservation with us, please do so. We are issuing 100% refunds for cancellations due to Covid
  • Please refrain from spreading rumors regarding the virus. Our staff has been instructed to avoid entertaining dialogue which is not statistically and scientifically aligned
