Private campgrounds stay open amid pandemic to help with isolation

Some campgrounds around New York were slated to open this month.

But that doesn’t appear as though it’s happening in the short-term. At least not state parks, which were closed earlier this month through executive order.

Anyone who had a reservation at a campground before May 15th, when they are slated to reopen, is eligible for a refund.

A few private campgrounds around the region have continued operating, but many with limited access. For example, a campground in Canandaigua opened up last month, but only did so for self-contained RV’s.

The manager of the KOA in Canandaigua tells WHEC-TV the decision was made to open so that people who live there could come home, and also for people who want to social distance from their families during the pandemic.
