SDC reopens campground, keeps theme park closed

Posted online

While Silver Dollar City Attractions' campground has reopened, a date has not yet been set for the Branson theme park.

"There is still no word on Silver Dollar City, Showboat Branson Belle or White Water," SDC spokesperson Lisa Rau said via email.

The theme park has delayed its spring opening multiple times. It originally had been set for March 17 before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold.

Located adjacent to the theme park, the campground began accepting reservations yesterday, according to a post on its website signed by Manager Nic Nelson.

With cabins, tent camping sites and RV areas, the campground is reopening with restrictions in place. Masks and social distancing are required in public areas, and playgrounds and the pool remain closed.

About a month after SDC's original planned spring opening, the attraction announced it furloughed 257 employees at the theme park and campground.

SDC last year set an attendance record with 2.22 million guests.
