COVID 19 Initiatives

Michigan Governor Whitmer has announced a reopening plan for Michigan in wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic. There have been several executive orders since then that apply to many different aspects of daily life. Due to these restrictions, we are limiting the amount of people on site at our outdoor sports complex. We are excited about our 2021 season and look forward to having many visitors.  While at Lake Arvesta Farms, please be mindful of the amount of separation between you and the other patrons.  Social distancing guidelines, as determined by regional and local COVID-19 health directives, need to be followed.  Even with social distancing, we know that Lake Arvesta Farms is still a water sports park that can be enjoyed by everyone!

In order to help protect visitors and staff at Lake Arvesta, we ask that if you have had exposure to someone with known or suspected COVID-19 that you reschedule your trip for at least two weeks after the initial exposure occurred. Also, if you have a fever please refrain from coming to Lake Arvesta Farms until you have been fever free for at least three days without the aid of medication.

Remember that no amount of caution can completely prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, but the staff at Lake Arvesta Farms is committed to following the COVID-19 rules and recommendations of regional and local health directives as carefully as possible.  This means that changes to attractions and normal operations may be made.  Efforts to limit the number of patrons in particular areas of the park may be made, and sanitation efforts will be increased among many other possible changes.  These changes will be made to help protect all of our patrons and staff.  Safety is our primary concern.  Even though the management and staff at Lake Arvesta Farms are committed to doing everything we can to stop the transmission of the coronavirus, ultimately patrons are responsible for their own health.  Any patrons who choose not to follow our health and safety guidelines, will be asked to leave the park without refund. Please see the below changes and response for COVID19 Policies at Lake Arvesta Farms.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
