Strathroy, January 5, 2022 – The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority (SCRCA) is advising campers that reservations at the Authority’s three regional campgrounds are being delayed for the 2022 season. Originally scheduled to open on January 10th, reservations for transient camping at the A.W. Campbell, Lorne C. Henderson, and Warwick Conservation Areas will open on March 21st.

The decision was made after the provincial announcement on January 3rd that reinstated restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Because of the increase in COVID-19 cases and the government response, we are uncertain as to what capacity we will be able to operate our campgrounds this season,” said Greg Wilcox, Manager of Conservation Areas at the SCRCA, “We would rather delay accepting reservations than cancel bookings at a later date.”

During the 2020 and 2021 camping seasons, the SCRCA limited the availability of transient camping sites and did not allow group camping, among other restrictions, to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff.

“We appreciate the patience and understanding of our camping community,” said Wilcox, “We look forward to welcoming campers back this spring for a fun and safe camping season.”
