LTVCA Watershed – Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority’s campgrounds will open for overnight, transient camping on Friday, June 11 as Ontario enters the first step of its reopening plan.

Step 1 of Ontario’s Reopening states more outdoor activities will resume with smaller, well-managed crowds where risk of transmission is minimized. For the LTVCA’s conservation areas and campgrounds this will mean: outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people will be permitted, campgrounds will open for overnight transient camping and public washrooms in our day use areas will be open.
Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen is a 3-step plan to safely and cautiously reopen the province and gradually lift public health measures. The plan is based on the province wide vaccination rate and improvements in key public health and health care indicators. The province will remain at each step for at least 21 days to evaluate any impacts on key public health and health system indicators.
The LTVCA will continue to monitor changes and provide updates as the province works to best protect us during this COVID-19 pandemic. Updates and information on COVID-19 impacts to LTVCA programs and services can be viewed on each conservation area page on our website at www.ltvca.ca. The health, safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers and the community remains our highest priority.
