COVID-19 Update

Updated – April 1st, 2021 6:00 pm

Thank you for doing your part to keep the numbers down in Ontario. We appreciate the patience that you have all afforded us as we develop and understand the ongoing changes in regulations, guidelines and protocols.

We will continue to adjust our operations as change happens and we receive guidance from the provincial police, our local health unit as well as the provincial government.  

All guests entering and wishing to recreate and/or stay at Haliburton Forest must self-assess before visiting us.

Stay safe and healthy!
