COVID-19 Notice

We work directly with the County of San Mateo to determine what precautions we should take to make this as safe of an experience as possible. Because of this, we have altered many of our regular services to meet the health needs of our guests. You can find more information on what precautions and expectations we have of you during your stay here. Some of the key changes are:

  • We are providing no food service during your stay. You are responsible for bringing all food, ice, and cooking equipment (if not listed in your cabin/campsite amenities)
  • There are no program sites open. The pool, climbing tower, canoeing, archery, and zip line are all closed until further notice.
  • Only people who live in the same household can share a cabin/tent. We do allow for families who are in each other's social bubbles to stay in adjacent cabins/tents, but they must maintain social distancing procedures throughout their stay.
  • There are no shared bathhouses or common spaces open on our site. Each cabin has their own bathroom and all common spaces are closed.
