Hello campers

I hope to bring the info upfront so our friends know what is happening with covid 19 and the canyon. We are open. Hot tub and sauna are closed. Pool is going to be open for the summer. Max occupancy is 20. All chairs and chase lounges of the canyon is removed. Please bring your own chairs. Cafe will be open with a marked entrance and exit. Carry out only as no chairs or tables will be available. Menu is limited to burgers and fries for dinner and for breakfast our omelets as rollups to be eaten on the go. We are sorry to have to put these restrictions on to our campers however it is as per state mandate in order for us to be open. We do suggest campers maintain a six foot distance from one another, wash your hands frequently and wear a face mask to all help in keeping everyone safe during these hard times.

Hello Campers,

As of 5/3/2020 The state's stay at home order has been dropped..

and been replaced with the following information.

To Let you know, the Canyon is OPEN. We are in operation and are in constant connection with the state and federal guidelines as it relates to Covid-19.

The following are excerpts of from the Governor's  webpage on https://governor.mo.gov/show-me-strong-recovery-plan-guidance-and-frequently-asked-questions .

"Missouri’s initial recovery phase begins May 4, 2020, and during this phase we can gradually start to reopen economic and social activity. This will be a deliberate process, and is flexible to adapt to the situation. Some communities may be able to reopen at a faster rate, while others may need to continue restrictions to keep the virus from spreading. During this time, we should limit our activity and interactions and continue to maintain social distancing and practice good hygiene to protect our neighbors and ourselves."

"During Phase I, we can gradually start to reopen economic and social activity. This will be a deliberate process, and is flexible to adapt to the situation. Some communities may be able to reopen at a faster rate, while others may need to continue restrictions to keep the virus from spreading. During Phase I, we should limit our activity and interactions and continue to maintain social distancing and practice good hygiene to protect our neighbors and ourselves."

"General Guidelines for Missourians

  • Citizens who feel sick should stay home!

  • Continue to practice good hygiene, including:

    • Washing hands with soap and water, or using hand sanitizer, especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces;

    • Avoiding touching your face;

    • Sneezing or coughing into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow; and

    • Disinfecting frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible.

  • Avoid socializing in groups that do not readily allow for appropriate physical distancing (receptions, trade shows, etc.). When in public (parks, outdoor recreation spaces, shopping malls, etc.), individuals should maximize physical distance from others.

  • Minimize travel to the extent possible."

The Canyon is complying with the order that has been set forth by the Governor and Federal Government. The Canyon is open for the season. You will on your visit see some changes around the campground that are going to be required to be open. One is we will be stressing the importance of Social/Physical Distancing and washing your hands frequently. You will see signage to reminds us all of these important steps to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The State's stay at home order went into effect April 6th and was set to expire April 24th.

Today 4/16/2020 Governor Mike Parsons has extended the stay at home order to May 3rd.

Cclarifications from the Governors office about the Stay-at-Home order that is in effect for the state of Missouri.

I was referred to the following link for answers. 
https://governor.mo.gov/stay-home-missouri-order-guidance-and-frequently-asked-questions

Excerpts of the governor.mo webpage.

Here are some examples of things you can do under this order:

  • Go to grocery, convenience, or warehouse stores
  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up medications and other healthcare necessities
  • Go to medical appointments (check with your doctor or provider first)
  • Go to a restaurant for take-out, delivery, or drive-thru
  • Go to a place of worship – just make sure that no more than 10 people are in any single space at one time and keep 6 feet of distance between you and others
  • Take a walk, ride your bike, hike, fish, hunt, golf and be in nature for exercise – just keep six feet of distance between you and others
  • Receive deliveries from any business which delivers

Do work places that do not qualify as “essential” businesses have to close?

No. Businesses that are not covered by the guidance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) discussed in the Order may remain open but must comply with the social gathering and social distance requirements of the Order.  This means that no more than 10 individuals can occupy a single space, this includes both employees and customers.  Individuals must also maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others. Employees must also practice good hygiene and sanitation to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The Canyon will comply with the order that has been set forth by the Governor. We will allow campers to come in to the Canyon during this time. But, we will be stressing the importance of Social/Physical Distancing. The choice to attend our camping facility or others is your personal choice and we accept no responsibility of injury due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Things that will be effected by these limits are: Registration will be curbside, no in store registration. Store purchases will be offered through window service only. The hot tub and sauna systems will not be operational and no large bonfires will be made to curb the desire to gather.

The Canyon will be following the direction of the cleaning for the Covid 19 as per state requirements.

If you have reservations during the time, we are open for your attendance.  However we only accept you into the campground if you abide by the state requirements of social/physical distancing.

If because of the Covid 19 epidemic, you feel that you would not like to attend and have reservations, we will honor your reservations at a later time once the order has been lifted. Any Deposits will be held on your accounts for that future visit.  Any deposits that are requested to be returned to you via credit card will have a processing service fee deducted.

All Social activities planned during this order will be on hold for a later date. We will update the website as we are able to.

We do feel strongly about the safety of all of our campers. And we hope that this epidemic is short lived. We want everyone to stay safe. Think safety, think distance and think of your fellow campers and please stay in touch with us here at the Canyon.

We do stress if you at all feel ill, or have been in touch with anyone that has tested positive of the Corona Virus that you please self isolate yourself in your own home. WE STRESS that you please stay in contact with us here. If you need anything during this time, you have the Canyon's supportive staff, campers to help you.

If you have any further questions, please contact us.

Take care of yourselves and stay in touch,

Chaz and Jim
