Blue Mountain Resort to open for camping and glamping this weekend
Blue Mountain Resort will be opening for camping and glamping seven days a week beginning this week.
Following CDC guidelines, guests will be required to wear masks when entering lodges, and will be expected to practice proper social distancing around the mountain.
Many extra cleaning precautions have been, and will continue to be, taken around the lodges and other high-touch areas.
The resort will offer both tent and RV basic camping sites, each complete with a fire ring and picnic table.
Basic sites are located at the base of the mountain in the “prairie” fields surrounded by woods line and mountain views.
The resort’s glamping sites will also be opening Friday. Glamping gives guests the experience of camping with more modern conveniences. Sites are complete with queen bunk beds, a loo toilet, solar shower, a deck, Adirondack chairs and a picnic table all enclosed in a canvas tent
There will be six glamping sites available through the end of May, 11 new sites added in early June, and an additional eight sites opening in late August for a total of 25 sites.
Glamping sites are spread out throughout the mountain, giving each site its own unique view and setting. A UTV ride is provided to escort guests and their gear to their site.
There will be limited mountain activities for campers as Carbon County remains in the red phase of Gov. Tom Wolf’s plan to reopen Pennsylvania.
All mountain activities, including mountain biking, on mountain training, and the Summit Adventure Park are scheduled to open June 5, or when Carbon County is moved into the yellow phase.
Slopeside Pub & Grill remains open for curbside pick up from 3-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, and noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
