Limiting the need to visit our local grocery stores helps lower your impact on the community and reduces your exposure to others. We recommend planning ahead and by bringing many of the supplies and provisions you think you may need during your stay, if possible. Just as where you live, items in high demand, such as toilet paper, hand sanitizer and disinfectants may also be in limited supply here - so if you are able to bring these types of items, we would encourage it.
Here is a list of supplies we provide for your stay
- Starter supply of toilet paper, paper towels & trash bags (this starter supply usually gets you first the first 3 to 5 days, depending on your group size)
- Laundry Detergent, Dishwashing Soap & Detergent, Disinfecting Products
- Facial tissue
- Personal Care Amentities: shampoo, conditioner, lotion & locally made bar soap
Items you may want to pack to avoid multiple grocery store visits
- Additional paper goods such as paper towels and toilet paper
Keep Your Distance from Others Not in Your Group
Everyone's become more sensitive about their personal space in these times. Please be extra courteous and maintain a safe distance from those you're not traveling with. When entering a business, it’s important to adhere to crowd control regulations. It’s also a good idea to limit your time in crowded spaces and resist the urge to gather at trailheads and other popular locations. All retail stores have limits on how many individuals may enter the store at one time, please be patient and understand this is a new way of life for all of us - our community is so excited to welcome travelers back and we're doing everything we can to make things as effecient as possible while keeping guests and residents safe.
