West Forty RV Park


We follow recommendations provided by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Department of Health and Department of Employment and Economic Development with respect to COVID-19 safety precautions for our staff and guests at all times.


Getting out into the wilderness is a natural way to make the most out of life as we try to get back to 'normal' in a COVID-19 world. We believe that camping can be a safe experience when people continue practicing social distancing guidelines and wearing a mask when indoors. We plan to do everything we can to make your vacation a good experience.

As guidelines for campgrounds are revised by the State of Minnesota, we will email our customers (click here to join our email list), post updates on our Facebook page and update our website with information that could impact your stay with us. 


We encourage campers and staff to:

  • Maintain a distance of 6 feet from all individuals who are not from within your primary household.
  • Avoid congregating in groups of more than 50 people outdoors.
  • Wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
  • Ask guests to cover coughs and sneezes. 
  • Have campers avoid sharing personal household items like dishes, towels, bedding, etc. 
  • Increase cleaning and sanitation procedures for public spaces like bathrooms.


*NEW FOR 2021*

  • Showers will be available one person at a time with cleaning in between each use. Key must be requested at the office.
  • We have added porta-potties in our tent and rustic camping areas. 
  • Restrictions on gathering in groups have been updated by the Health Department so that gatherings of 50 people outdoors (or less) will be allowed.


Campers will notice the following policies in place at West 40 RV Park. Guests with access to fully self-contained RVs or campers (those which include bathroom and shower units) are asked to not use the campground restrooms to limit traffic of those facilities.


In the office:

  • We have installed a barrier wall and sneeze/cough guards around our check-in desk area to protect our family and staff.
  • Only one (1) person per check-in will be allowed in the office at a time.
  • All guests will be asked to wear a face mask while in the office.
  • West Forty RV Park prefers payment via credit or debit card to reduce contact between staff and guests.
  • Firewood, ice and other items will be for sale from the office. Wood and ice will be delivered to your site at no additional cost.


In restroom areas:

  • We have posted reminder signs for proper hand washing in our sink areas.
  • All guests are asked to wear a face mask while using the restroom.
  • We've increased the cleaning of our restroom facilities and use Clorox Disinfecting Bleach (EPA registration number 5813-111) which is on the EPA’s list of approved disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19.
  • Bathroom sanitation frequency has been increased.
  • Restrooms use is limited to one (1) person at a time.


In the park:

  • Our pavilion is available for rent. If site G-3 is rented, use of the pavilion is included in the site rental. Guests should avoid gatherings of more than 50 people.
  • We ask campers continue social distancing by maintaining a distance of 6 feet from any individuals who are not members of your household.
  • Group camping sites no longer have occupancy restrictions.
