ATTENTION: Campers Using Tents or Soft-sided Trailers
Bears have damaged tents and soft-sided trailers within Russian River Campground in the past. For your safety and the safety of others, please store all attractants - food, garbage, hygiene items, and anything with a smell - in a hard-sided vehicle or in the storage locker provided on site. Be aware and advised that bear incidents within the Campground may trigger immediate prohibitions on tent and soft-sided vehicle camping through the issuance of an Emergency Order signed by the Forest Supervisor, which will require campers using these types of shelters to vacate the Campground.
