TOWN OF WRIGHTSTOWN, Wis (NBC 26) -- For many, Memorial Day weekend means heading to the cabin or going to your favorite campground. And on Friday many campsites started experiencing how badly people are itching to get out of their homes.

At Apple Creek Campground in the town of Wrightstown management say they are nearly 80 percent full for the weekend. But management adds that campers are going to have to be ready for some changes. For starters, their pool and gaming room are shut down right now to encourage social distancing, and they are also limiting the number of customers that are allowed in their camp store at a time.

"Usually we have the games going and there is lots of noise and kids in here and this year it's not like that. But, we're back to camping. We're getting back to basics and I think that's okay," says Pam Packee the Apple Creek Campground Manager.

Another change at Apple Creek Campground this year is that management is encouraging customers to visit their camp store virtually, on an app for your smartphone. And when you make a purchase they'll even drop your merchandise off at your campsite to try and cut down on the traffic inside of their building.
