Park Facilities Reopen and Activities Resume Nov. 3rd - October 27th

After much consideration and deliberation, the Escapees RV Parks administrative team has decided that we will allow park facilities to reopen and organized activities to resume starting the first week in November, where state and local policies permit. 

However, several policies and procedures have been established. Such policies include, but are not limited to:

  • Participant and organizer guidelines
  • Limited facility usage
  • Modified hours of operation
  • Restrictions to types of activities permitted
  • Following CDC, local and state guidelines
  • Online Waiver
We ask that all guests review the complete list of guidelines and information created by Escapees RV Parks. The Escapees RV Parks Facilities and Activities Covid-19 Policies and Procedures will guide staff, organizers, and participants through the required practices for the operation of the park facilities and group activities.
 
In addition, we have also created an “Escapees RV Parks Liabilities Waiver”(completed online at www.escapeesrvparks.com/waiver) for guests that intend to utilize park facilities and/or participate in organized activities. The waiver only needs to be completed once during the duration of stay but should be submitted online by each household member. This will help us with contract tracing in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak while also helping guests understand the policies and procedures in which they must follow.
 
CLOSURES DUE TO INCREASED RISK

The Escapees RV Parks administrative team may need to modify policies and the use of park facilities if the area is experiencing more than a “minimal” level of community transmission of COVID-19. The CDC defines the “none to minimal” level as “evidence of isolated cases or limited community transmission, case investigations underway, no evidence of exposure in large communal setting, e.g., healthcare facility, school, mass gathering.” If there is a higher level of community transmission in the area—what the CDC defines as “widespread and/or sustained transmission with high likelihood or confirmed exposure within communal settings with potential for the rapid increase in suspected cases then all park facilities will be closed and park activities will be suspended.

CLOSURES DUE TO POLICY VIOLATIONS

The failure, and/or refusal, to comply with all health and safety precautions implemented by Escapees RV Parks and staff may result in the immediate closure of park facilities and the suspension of all park related activities. These precautions include, but are not limited to:

  • maintaining a minimum of 6 feet distance from others
  • periodically washing hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds
  • wearing a mask securely over nose and mouth at all times indoors, and at other functions when requested by park staff
  • adhering to state and local guidelines and regulations related to attending gatherings

Policy violations should be reported to parks@escapees.com.

COVID-19 UPDATE - August 12th

“Safer-in-Place” and Travel Guidance

Over the past couple of months, we have been asked to do something which is challenging to any RVers’ nature by staying in place for longer periods of time and postponing leisurely travels across the states. As the country and world starts to find its way forward, we must continue to look out for the safety and wellness of RVers and the larger community. RVers should take care to follow best practices while at home and traveling.

  • Reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 or passing it on to others by staying in place as much as possible. As noted by the CDC, “traveling increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19.” Even in self-contained RVs, stops for gas and supplies may put you in close contact with others who may be infected, or you may unknowingly spread it to others.
  • During travelminimize your interactions while in transit and follow any state and local travel restrictions in place along your route. These may change at any time and you should recheck your route throughout your trip. State and local health departments are a good resource for information.
  • Practice social distancing and safety measures in accordance with CDC guidelines and recommendations. Be aware that you could be an asymptomatic carrier and could spread the disease unknowingly.
  • Be mindful of the perception of RVers as outsiders during this time. It is every RVers’ responsibility and obligation to respect the laws and policies given by the counties and states we visit. Not following these regulations can create detrimental problems for all RVers. If counties or municipalities enact ordinances to restrict travel in their communities (e.g. no overnight stays), they may last for many years to follow.

Be sure your destination is welcoming travelers into the community. Some counties and municipalities may have orders barring visitors or mandating a quarantine upon arrival. In addition, they may have stay-at-home orders or other travel restrictions. Make sure to research restrictions along your route as well.

Although we may not feel like tourists, the communities we visit often do not know us or our lifestyle. As RVers, it is important to understand the impact we can have, both directly and indirectly. Not following these regulations can create detrimental problems for all RVers and for the lifestyle we all love and have fought so hard to enjoy. Be sure to follow all regulations and create a good impression. We are the outsiders in the community.

While states may start opening to more travel, until this situation is under control, the safest option is still to stay in place and limit travel to essential needs. The following resources have more information on state and county travel. We must take the time to properly research before we plan any move. Many states are not yet in a phase where they encourage leisurely non-resident travel. Please check with local authorities if you have questions

COVID-19 UPDATE - May 19th

As more states revise their individual orders, we will evaluate the status of our park(s) within those states. When policies are adjusted, we will update the information on each park’s webpage.

Before deciding to revert to our standard reservation policies, we must evaluate a variety of local, state, and federal orders. As you are likely aware, these orders vary greatly from state to state, and even county to county. Because our club, activities, and parks reach a national level, the following information was distributed in our last message: “To continue doing what we can to protect our staff and guests, we will continue following our revised policies and Stay-in-Place guidance across all Escapees RV Parks until the CDC and other Federal agencies condone returning to leisurely travel.” 

While this statement still holds true, we have come to the consensus that state and local policies, supported by the White House and CDC’s Opening Up America Again guide, will direct our decisions for corresponding Escapees parks. Our policy decisions include when to revert to standard reservation policies (daily, weekly, and monthly reservations) and away from monthly-only reservations. However, all social distancing measures will continue to remain in effect until further notice.

Stay in Place

We at Escapees RV Club are concerned for our members and all RVers during this time of crisis. With more states adding stay at home orders on top of CDC and other health organization recommendations, we feel it is best for RVers to stay in place for the time being.

We hope you are somewhere you feel comfortable and are able to stay for the immediate future. If not, we recommend you quickly make your way to somewhere you are comfortable and may stay for an extended time. Whether you’re on your own property, at an RV park, or staying in a family member’s driveway, we want you to be safe. Staying in one spot will help minimize your exposure and also remove the stress of hunting for another campsite. By practicing social distancing and any stay at home orders, we hope to help flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.

For the safety of our park staff and guests, access to certain amenities will be restricted for the foreseeable future.
All park buildings are closed and locked to the general public, including campground staff and park residents, until further notice with exception to laundry rooms and exterior-accessible restrooms. This includes park offices, activity centers, clubhouses, etc.

Park offices are closed to outside guests. If you need to make a reservation, ask a question, make a payment, etc, you will have to call the park office. Staff will still be available during regular office hours, but face-to-face interaction is discouraged. Lastly, social hours, meals, and formal community gatherings are canceled until further notice.

Please know that through access is restricted our parks are still open to guests
