ADA Compliance

ADA COMPLIANCE

 

  • The Woods Campground is always working to improve ADA Compliance within our Campground and on our Web site.
  • Our Web site is being modified to conform to the Level “A” Compliance from the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) v2.1 released in June 2018.

FACILITIES

The environment at a campground is meant to be natural and as nature created it.  This can cause some mobility difficulty for some guests.  Please be aware that The Woods Campground does not have paved roads or paths.  Our camp roads do not have sidewalks.  Our trails have exposed roots and rocks.  Camp sites and facilities are built on flat surfaces, but be aware that the entire campground sits on a gentle slope.  Even though we have had many guests with disabilities enjoy their visit, it is not for everyone. 

We have undergone many facility improvements which include better access for our guests with disabilities.

CLUBHOUSE:  Access to the main clubhouse can be achieved with no steps.  This includes the following facilities:

  • Camp Store and Guest Services Desk:  Our entire store is easily accessible and our Guest Services Team is ready to assist with account creation, reservations and check-in.  We have a desk built for wheel chair access.  We also have an ADA compliant bathroom within the store.
  • Bathrooms:  In 2019, we constructed new bathroom facilities in our clubhouse.  There are no steps to enter and each contains ADA toilet and shower stalls and sinks which will accommodate wheelchair access.
  • Covered Patio:  Access to our covered patio can be achieved with no steps.
  • Dance Club:  Access to our dance club can be achieved with no steps.  Use the doors from the covered patio.
  • Cafe:  Access to our cafe can be achieved with no steps.  Enter through the dance club.  Note:  We also have a separate ADA compliant bathroom for guests dining in the cafe.
  • Parking:  We have marked handicapped accessible parking spaces for The Clubhouse at the Guest Services and Bathroom entrances.  These spaces were created with  flat, concrete, slip resistant surfaces.

 POOL:  Access to the Pool can be achieved with no steps. 

  • Enter through the gate near the garden gazebo or the gate adjacent to the Gladys and Pearl’s Pool Cabana. 
  • To enter the pool, it was built with a slip resistant ramp with hand rails, but please note this ramp is not ADA compliant.  For ADA compliant water access, the pool has a lift chair.  Please ask a Woods team member for assistance.
  • The pool has in-water seating and shaded areas to make your swim more comfortable.  The majority of the water depth is 3 feet.
  • Access to Gladys and Pearl’s pool cabana can be achieved with no steps.  Here, you have quick and easy access to food and beverages.  We can also make a cafe server available to you during cafe hours.  The server can take your order, deliver your food and process your payment from your pool seat.

COMFORT STATIONS:  Access to two comfort stations can be achieved with no steps.

A comfort station is a bathing facility within the camping area.  The “Sofia” and “Rose” comfort stations are ADA Compliant with entrance ramps, ADA toilet and shower stalls and sinks which will accommodate wheelchair access. 

LAKE:  Access to the Lake at The Woods can be achieved by utilizing a portion of the dam.  Please note that swimming is prohibited in the Lake.


HEARING IMPAIRED GUESTS

The Woods Campground has an ASL interpreter on staff on most weekends to assist our hearing impaired guests.  If you are in need of these services, please alert our Guest Services staff and you will be introduced to him.  Our ASL interpreter is present at most events to make your participation possible and more enjoyable.

Our facilities team always takes into consideration whether adequate lighting is present so hearing impaired guests can communicate with each other during night time activities.
