EUREKA, California, May 18, 2017 – Despite the long, wet winter and spring throughout the North Coast area, Six Rivers National Forest recreation staff have been hard at work getting most of the forest’s campgrounds ready to open by Memorial Day weekend.

“Like everyone else, I’m looking forward to sunshine, summer, and getting out and enjoying the forest,” said Acting Forest Supervisor Michael Green. “With 18 developed campgrounds, as well as many more rustic, dispersed camping sites throughout the forest, there are a lot of opportunities just waiting for you to relax and enjoy the outdoors.”

Most of the forest’s developed campgrounds are equipped with vault or flush toilets, fire rings or stoves, tables, parking for two vehicles, and potable water. Some campgrounds have electrical hook-ups, and many have hosts.

Campsite reservations may be made for Grassy Flat, Panther Flat, Patrick Creek, Dillon Creek, Fish Lake, Oak Bottom, Nordheimer, Pearch Creek, Boise Creek, Mad River and Fir Cove campgrounds by calling (877) 444-6777 or TDD (877) 833-6777, or visiting www.recreation.gov. All other facilities are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Campgrounds have varying levels of wheelchair accessibility. Campsite fees range from $8 to $15 per night for single sites.

A campfire or barbecue outside of developed campgrounds requires a free campfire permit. Permits may be obtained from any Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, or CalFire office, as well as online at www.preventwildfireca.org/campfires.

To avoid spreading Port-Orford-cedar (POC) root disease, East Fork and Fish Lake campgrounds will remain closed until mid-June. The pathogen that causes the disease lives in water and wet soil, where is can be easily transported by vehicles; therefore, off-road vehicles, dirt bikes, mountain bikes and horses are not allowed in these campgrounds or on adjacent trails while these areas are closed.

Some forest roads remain closed not only due to POC concerns, but also because of this year’s heavy snow accumulations. This includes roads that access Bear Basin, Doe Flat, Ship Mountain, Sanger Lake and other popular recreation areas. These roads and others will be evaluated for possible opening by mid-June. For a list of last fall’s POC gates closures, visit https://go.usa.gov/xNjre.

For more information on campgrounds, including opening dates, visit the forest webpage www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/srnf/recreation or contact your local Forest Service office. For more information about recreation opportunities on the forest, contact Bryson Code, recreation program manager, at (707) 441-3520 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
