Planning Your Trip

COVID-19 Modified Operations

Our planned re-opening date is May 1, 2021. We have implemented a new safety protocol for CRFS. This will decrease the number of overnight guests from 24 to 15. It will also decrease our day-use capacity from 40 to 16. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip. The complete safety protocol can viewed here.
