It is no surprise that COVID-19 and the Coronavirus has changed every aspect of our way of life.   While malls, theaters and restaurants are currently closed to the public, campgrounds in the state have been deemed an “essential business” and will be allowed to open.  The New York on Pause directive runs until May 15th, which is our usual opening day at Whispering Pines.  However this year, because of the pandemic and strict social distancing recommendations, we will be opening on Friday, May 22nd with limited services and special restrictions in place.  

These restrictions include the following:

  • Camping is restricted to our seasonal guests and transient (overnight & weekend) guests in self-contained units only.
  • We currently cannot allow tent camping.  
  • Restroom, shower and laundry facilities will remain closed.
  • The Tamarack Room (our recreation room) will remain closed.
  • All activities scheduled for the 2020 season have been cancelled.
  • The pool will remain closed at this time.
  • The campground office will have limited hours.  Renovations are planned to include erecting a plexi-glass barrier at the registration counter and social distancing measures must be followed.
  • No day visitors will be allowed to enter the park.
  • The 6′ separation must be maintained at all times.
  • PPE (face masks) must be worn when leaving your site.

We understand that these guidelines are not typical and may be difficult to adhere to, but they are necessary.  We all have a responsibility to do the right thing to protect ourselves and others from this virus. Please be respectful of these guidelines. We hope and pray that they will be temporary.  As we get new information on the pandemic and quarantine, we will be updating our posts.  In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at whispers@localnet.com 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we navigate through these unprecedented times.
