Important message on our COVID-19 response

The Umpqua National Forest has temporarily closed developed recreation sites across the forest. Undeveloped forest lands and trails remain open. For a definition of Developed Recreation please follow this link: Dispersed camping is still allowed.

Our staff is aligning our operations to support state Governor executive orders for residents to stay home and stay safe. Our mission-critical work, such as suppressing wildfires, Forest Law Enforce activities and other public service responsibilities, continue uninterrupted. We are following USDA, CDC, state, county and local guidance and orders to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
