"Business as usual"
In light of current events, we though it important to let you know that River Rock Recreation Campsite will open for the season.
At this point in the development of the COVID19 pandemic, Gov. Wolf has ordered the closure of all Non Life-Sustaining Business and asked every Pennsylvanian to self quarantine. However in the comprehensive list, under Leisure & Hospitality, RV parks and Recreational Camps (residential only) may continue physical operations, at this time.
Given our unique attributes as a single-private campsite, the risks posed to our operation is minimal. As the situation evolves and changes with time, we will reassess our decision as needed to ensure the safety of the public and adhere to the recommendations given by the state.
We are hopeful that by then everyone will be starting to return to their normal routines.
