A note to our current and future guests:

The last few weeks have been challenging and confusing for everyone. It’s our goal to be as honest, up front and proactive as possible to ensure our guests are safe to enjoy Niemeyer’s Rugged River Resort. We also understand this is new territory with respect to the Coronavirus. Our hope is that with the current guidelines in place, new cases will decline and come early May we will only be looking forward to fishing opener and everyone’s summer vacations at Rugged River Resort.


Perhaps we are being overly optimistic. We are fairly certain all reservations will be able to take place as currently booked. Our location is away from the city, and unlike many businesses, we have little foot traffic and many acres of woodland to separate us from others. Our cabins are not rated for large groups and guests can easily be naturally and socially distanced at our cabins and on the river.


We are evaluating our processes and may need to change how guests check in, the number of people allowed in office at a time and how we sell products. We have always been diligent in our cleaning practices and will continue to do so. We will change how our cleaners are protected and are looking at changes to how we handle laundry. Additionally, until safe to re-open, we will not open public hangout places like our pool area or host any large guest games or gatherings.


We are in this with you. The hardships placed on us are still evolving, as we continue to work with unknowns. Please know, we will continue to make decisions and operate with everyone’s health and wellbeing in mind.
