Government guidelines allow for self contained camping on site from the 12th April 2021. This includes caravans and camper vans with their own sanitary facilities. We look forward to welcoming campers in tents to enjoy the facilities from 17th May 2021. 

At Chester Lakes, the health and safety of our customers has always been paramount. All of our communal areas are cleaned to a high standard, however, right now any ‘normal’ cleaning procedures will simply not be enough to control the spread of Coronavirus as so we have employed extra measures to maintain the safety of our customers and staff.

All our staff will be operating with an enhanced set of cleaning guidance.

Your role in staying safe includes acting at all times to minimise risk and taking into account guests in camping or caravan pitches and fishing pegs close to yours, maintaining social distancing measures where possible. 

Watching and learning 

As we are sure you’ll be aware, new research is being conducted all of the time, and this can often prompt a change in Government guidance. We will, of course, keep up to date with the latest information and adapt our approach appropriately. In addition, we will listen to first-hand feedback from our customers.
