The City of Sault Ste. Marie reminds citizens that under the province’s Declaration of Emergency, and Regulations under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, Pointe Des Chenes campground and beach/day park remain closed until further notice. Access to the area is strictly prohibited.
Although other campgrounds have been permitted to open, the criteria for opening campgrounds under the Emergency Order, are not met by Pointe Des Chenes. It is anticipated that once the Provincial order is lifted and restrictions are relaxed, the City will work to get the water system running and ready for use by the end of June.
In the meantime, those who would like to remove their trailers from the campground of the park are asked to send a message to the Lions Club Pointe Des Chenes Facebook page where arrangements can be made.
The beach and campground closures were ordered as part of the extended declaration of emergency to stop the spread of COVID-19. People are encouraged to continue to stay home, practice physical distancing and avoid social gatherings. The City thanks residents for their cooperation during this time.
