During COVID-19 Pandemic (Updated July 17, 2020)

If you are traveling from a state with a COVID-19 advisory, you are required to quarantine for a minimum of 14 days.  Please see here further for details about the restricted states and requirements:  



If you are unwilling to quarantine yourself for 14 days, we are unable to accept you at Empire Haven at this time.  This includes both day people and transient campers.  Thank you in advance for your consideration of your fellow campers and nudist friends.  Stay healthy and safe!

We are pleased to announce that our Pool Area is open! 


However, please note the following restrictions, which are in addition to our regular Rules & Policies:

Anyone in the Pool Area must follow the guidelines set by New York State:

  1. All individuals must maintain a distance of at least six feet from other individuals at all times, unless they are members of the same household or family unit.

  2. Any time individuals are within six feet of individuals outside of their household or family unit and not in the water, they must wear an acceptable face covering that covers both the nose and mouth. Individuals must be prepared to don a face covering if another person unexpectedly comes within six feet.

  3. Face coverings should NOT be worn by individuals while they are in the water.

  4. Any single group of people on the premise or in the water should be 10 or fewer individuals; however, there may be more than one group on premise or in water so long as they are able to be separated by at least six feet.

  5. Pool lounge chairs are not to be moved.

  6. Flotation devices and pool toys will NOT be allowed in the pool this year.

Anyone on the grounds must follow the guidelines set by the Cayuga County Health Department:

  1. If you are a transient camper, and you become ill with a fever, dry cough, or sore throat during your stay, please go home as soon as possible and contact your primary care physician. If you are a seasonal camper and experience these symptoms, please isolate yourself and call your primary care physician.  If immediate medical attention is needed due to the worsening of these symptoms, call 911 and tell dispatch that you are experiencing symptoms typically associated with COVID19. 

  2. Practice social distancing.  Stay at least 6 feet from others.

  3. Wear a face covering when near other people.

  4. Large social gatherings, greater than 50 people, are prohibited at this time.

  5. Practice proper hand hygiene

    • Regular hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds should be done: 

    • Before and after eating. 

    • After sneezing, coughing, or nose blowing.  

    • After using the restroom. 

    • Before handling food. 

    • After touching or cleaning surfaces that may be contaminated. 

    • After using shared equipment and supplies.

    • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers by children should always be supervised by adults. 

  6. Practice proper respiratory hygiene by covering coughs and sneezes with tissues or the corner of elbow.  Dispose of soiled tissues immediately after use.

  7. Wipe frequently touched surfaces with disinfecting wipes or other EPA approved disinfectants. 

We will not be opening the Snack Bar this season due to COVID-19 concerns.  However, we'll be taking this time to renovate our kitchen area to offer a better experience in 2021.  You may bring in your own food and beverages - just no glass containers or bottles please.  

We will be operating under shortened registration hours.  Front Desk registration will be open from 9am-3pm Sunday thru Saturday.

Bathrooms and outhouses are open around the grounds.  

Our sunning lawn will be open for those wishing to relax in the sun, with areas marked to allow for social distancing.  Please feel free to bring your own chairs if you would like to do so!

Transient campers MUST make reservations in advance of coming to the campgrounds.  You will at that time be given instructions on what you will need to do upon arrival.  For those wishing to do no-hook-up (no water/electric) tenting, you do not need to make a reservation in advance as long as you are able to make it before registration closes at 3pm.  Otherwise, please call to make arrangements.  We are now taking reservations to rent our cabins and RVs starting July 1st.  There will be a 2-night minimum.  

For transient campers/day people with an Empire Haven membership that expires during the current season, we will extend your membership by two months beyond the expiration date for the inconvenience of not being allowed on the grounds until after regular opening date.  This does not extend AANR memberships.  Just a reminder – starting this season, our annual membership is only for Empire Haven.  If you would like an AANR membership as well, you will need to add $46/person.

We can't wait to see you all again!
