Policies for camping in Acorn Campground under COVID-19 restrictions:

  Our office will be closed to foot traffic.  We have arranged a walk-up window at front of office, to conduct any business.  Ideally, we would like to conduct business over phone or via email.  Checks, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.  No cash.

  Campers are confined to their campsites under the same set of rules that NJ homeowners are currently confined to for residential homes.        https://covid19.nj.gov/faqs/nj-information/general-public/for-which-reasons-can-i-leave-my-home-orplace-of-residence-what-are-the-%E2%80%9Cstay-at-home%E2%80%9D-rules-in-new-jersey ● Groups and gatherings are currently prohibited by NJ Executive Order.

  Social distancing of 6 feet is mandated in the campground.

  You must wear a mask when inside campground facilities and when interacting with people outside of your campsite.  Walking the campground with a mask is not required.  If you choose to stop and interact with people, then a mask is suggested.

  Campfires are allowed at individual campsites, subject to the social distancing restrictions. ● ‘Campers’ are the contract holders and their immediate families and previously named individuals on your 2020 contract.

  No guest or visitors until further notice.

  As usual, all individuals in the campground must be able to remove themselves from the property at any time.  In other words, everyone must have a vehicle on site and the ability to depart the campground in their vehicle.

  It is in your best interest to bring all your supplies with you.  Local stores here have limited supplies on hand.

 

Communication:

  Our primary means of communications will be with the email we have on file.

  Acorn Campground’s official Face Book page will be used for some communication.

  To contact the office please call (609) 886-7119 or email info@acorncampground.com.  We intend to answer the phones and email during regular business hours.

 

 

Governor Murphy says – “We’ll be looking very, very closely this weekend in how people adhere to these, both social distancing guidelines as well as whether or not you’re covering your face,” Murphy said Wednesday. “If we don’t like what we see, I hate to say this, I reserve the right to reverse the Executive Order that I’m signing today. So please enjoy the parks, but stay away from each other. Do not congregate. Wear a face covering, be responsible. If we have a good weekend this weekend, that hopefully can lead to better days ahead. We can keep these parks open.”
