How safe is your resort?
As safe as it can be!
We here at Campfire Bay want your stay to be worry-free. While we can’t control your feelings, we can do our best to create a safe and relaxing place to stay. We wanted to let you know here all that we do to ensure your physical safety.
We are located on a low-traffic lake in a quiet rural area so we are as safe as one can be from unwanted visitors of all types, whether seen or unseen. Our resort has a long lane entrance that is not lit up at night. This deters any outsiders from entering. We have a large loop inside the resort that makes for a relatively safe place for kids to ride their bikes and folks to run or walk, as well.
The resort also sets itself up to allow for social distancing. Families and friends can rent a cabin separate from other cabins, large family cabins can be divided inside for those who haven’t been in contact with each other to stay on different floors, and the exterior areas are large to allow a cabins’ occupants to sit at a campfire or picnic table and socially distance from their neighbor. Our waterfront is big enough that even on the busiest of days folks can socially distance and still enjoy the beach. We disinfect rental boats between guests and provide disinfectant for you to use on our free water toys if you so choose. Of course, being on a boat on the lake is social distancing at its best! Our island cabin (separate website, call for details) and our Eagle’s Nest cabin are especially more distanced from others and have their own private fire pits and docks.
If needed in the time of unseen visitors, i.e. illnesses, we have sign up times for the gameroom, the rec center, and activity room and disinfect between guest uses. We disinfect cabins with ozone gas, in addition to cleaners, between guests as well. We disinfect areas that have lots of contact with people by closing that area to people temporarily mid day and nightly and deploy ozone gas. There are more than 17 scientific studies that show ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus. In case you haven’t learned about ozone, ozone is a naturally occurring gas created from oxygen atoms. The oxygen molecule is made up of 2 oxygen atoms. These oxygen molecules are broken into atoms by the corona discharge during lightning storms or by UV light from the Sun. Single oxygen atoms cannot exist alone without regrouping back into diatomic oxygen molecules. During this recombination stage, some atoms will regroup into loosely bonded tri-atomic oxygen. This new molecule is called Ozone or O3. Ozone generators are able to make ozone from normal air and are normally used as room disinfectants. The antipathogenic effects of ozone have been substantiated for several decades. Its killing action upon bacteria, viruses, fungi, and in many species of protozoa, serve as the basis for its increasing use in disinfecting municipal water supplies in cities worldwide as well! We believe using ozone is more thorough and safer than overuse of bleach or quaternary disinfectants. We use EPA approved disinfectants, the least caustic and most natural possible, on surfaces when ozone is not an option. Linens, dishes, etc in cabins are also disinfected between guests.
To allow more physical distancing in the lodge, we have ice cream and coffee pick-up areas separated by over 10 ft and can also deliver to people outside. High risk folks can call us to help them out with anything at the resort or come in at 8-9am after the lodge has been ozoned overnight, to talk with us in person, grab a coffee, or make a purchase in the store. Many of our organized activities happen in our gathering room which can be divided into work pods that allow over 6 ft distance between guests and we have several sessions with less people at each session, usually just one family, to ensure physical distance. Masks and gloves are worn as needed.
While nature can not be controlled and there are rocks, roots, animals, insects, plants and more that can potentially harm a person, we do what we can to make your surroundings safe. We are always self-educating in this area of safety and welcome new ideas. We hope that the information we’ve provided here will help you feel more relaxed and at home in your “home away from home” here at Campfire Bay Resort.
