Berwyn Campground –

The Village of Berwyn is opening up its campground in August on a “Pilot Project” basis.  The following are the rules for campground use:

This is a casual use campground.  There are no services available except for the RV Holding Tank Disposal station and potable water at the entrance.

Campground fees are not collected.  Instead, we are on an “honor system” of a $10 donation per night.  Payments can be made at the Village Office (5006 – 51st Street) during normal business hours.  After-hours payments can also be dropped off through the mail slot at the Village Office.

There is no firewood supplied.  But you are welcome to collect the deadwood on the ground in the campground area.  Washrooms are supplied with toilet paper and hand sanitizer, and are restocked during normal business hours.

If the campground becomes crowded, occupancy at each site will be limited to three consecutive days.

Loud music and heavy drinking are discouraged.  Be considerate of other campers here.

Enjoy the facility, feel free to leave questions and comments on the Village of Berwyn Facebook page.

“Normal business hours” are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

For more info call the Village Office at 780-338-3922.
