Safely Venture Out


COVID-19 Response Plan

Responsible Restart Ohio

Venture Out Resorts’ No. 1 priority is the safety of our members, staff and surrounding communities. We are thrilled to be open, but these new standards have been developed to minimize risk and enhance safety for our members, staff and communities. We appreciate your support and cooperation so we can all enjoy the camping season!

 

CLEANLINESS

  • We will continue sanitation measures such as increased cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and bathhouses.
  • We will provide hand sanitizer in various locations throughout the resorts (to the extent that supplies are available).
  • CDC-issued signage has been posted throughout the resort, reminding guests and staff of proper hygiene and social distancing guidelines.
  • While we will continue thorough cleaning at our facilities and have adapted some of our processes, please be prepared to bring your own masks, sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer and disposable gloves, as you are able.

 

MAKING PLANS

  • Bring a face covering to wear whenever you enter an indoor space at our resorts or during your travels. It is mandatory by the state in all counties as of July 23 at 6 p.m.
  • If you are feeling ill and have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever, shortness of breath), please stay home and let us know that your reservation needs to be canceled as soon as you are able.
  • Our cancellation policy is now in effect. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the policy. If you cancel because of an illness, please send a doctor’s vote to wecare@ventureoutresorts.com and we will waive the fee. Thank you!
  • Plan to make the least amount of pit stops as you travel to our resorts. Pit stops are the most likely places you’ll risk contracting the virus or spreading it to others.
  • Visit this webpage often to make sure you understand our most current operations plan.

    • If a secondary reading confirms that the person has a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the person will be denied entry to the property and be directed toward medical care.
    • If a person refuses to provide information or cooperate with Security, the person will be denied entry to the property.

 

DURING YOUR STAY

  • Water will be on to all sites at both resorts so you can self-quarantine to your campsite as much as possible. Water shutt off will being the last 2 weeks of October.
  • We ask that you please take all trash to the dumpsters. We are suspending trash pickup during this time for the safety of our staff.
  • In all common areas, you must practice social distancing and stay 6 feet apart from others. We will be limiting the number of people in all buildings. Occupancy maximums will be posted at each location. For the safety of our guests and staff, please wear a face covering when inside.
