Missouri Representative Brad Hudson proposed that campground protections become law, a report said.

Governor Mike Parson signed omnibus bill HB369 into law, granting protections to campground operators that were originally offered in a Missouri House Bill by Stone County State Representative Brad Hudson.

According to the report, Hudson’s portion in the legislation would protect camp owners and operators against being sued by customers for injuries sustained while they are camping.

The bill specifically mentions items that would protect camp owners and operators from customers should they be affected by trees, weather, insects, or “naturally occurring infectious agents” like poison ivy.

The measure also protects the campgrounds in the event of theft, injury, or property damage caused by another camper.

Hudson stated that while the majority of his ideas were logical and met no opposition, the governor had not approved the measure due to the way things work in the state capitol, the report said.

Hudson pointed out that, while Hudson’s measure provides a lot more protection for campground operators and owners, it doesn’t exempt them from responsibility if they cause an issue with campers due to their own negligence. A property owner who is aware of a danger on their land but fails to post warning signs to warn customers about it will not be protected by the law.

It does not cover the owner of a campground from any injuries sustained by employees during work, the report added.

The law will take effect on August 28, 2021.
