My family has been given the wonderful and amazing gift of staying at a condo in Blue Mountain Beach (The Village) for a week from 8-1 to 8-7-20, this Saturday! One of my son's teachers owns it and offered it to us after his last surgery. He is 12 and had his 3rd open-heart surgery in September, after 2 strokes last June (2019). When she gifted us the stay, his cardiologist cleared us to take him, but with certain conditions, because of the Covid-19 risk at present. From viewing the beach cam at Blue Mountain Beach Regional Access point, and speaking with the visitor's center, I don't think we will be able to maintain a safe distance of 6 feet between our family and others at this beach because of the amount of crowding. I've looked into several state parks that have beaches, and one fills up super quickly and they close the park, and the other has a 1 mile walk to the beach, which would be pretty difficult for us in the heat. To make a long story short(er) , we cannot do any shopping or dining out, sight-seeing, or any indoor or crowded activities, so if we cannot safely visit the beach we are going to get pretty bored. We do have a canoe trip planned at some springs, and may do a 1/2 day pontoon rental, since these can be done with no contact with others outside our family. But that leaves at least 4 days unfilled, and our budget won't allow duplicates of those activity days. Unfortunately his medical bills keep us on a very tight budget and this trip is our first splurge in years! Could anyone either recommend a public beach access that isn't very crowded, where we maybe can maintain a decent distance, or would anyone happen to know of someone who would let us pay them a small fee (maybe $10-$15 a day) to park in their driveway and use a neighborhood access that's not terribly crowded? We do not smoke or drink or have pets, but we would like to put up a 10x10 canopy and hopefully be able to play some badminton or volleyball with a portable net, if we find a location with enough space.
