Rules and regulations in response to the Coronavirus pandemic are changing regularly as some states announce their roadmap, including eased restrictions on travel and camping.
We urge you to all keep up to date with travel guidance and health advisories issued by state governmental, law enforcement and health authorities. This includes rules around state and regional border closures, travel to remote communities, social gathering limits and physical distancing.
In many states, travel contrary to these directions may be punishable by imprisonment and/or significant financial penalties (to both hosts and campers).
Current bookings that do not comply with these current restrictions and measures should be changed or cancelled. Refer to our Natural Disaster Policy for cancellations.
