Recreation Updates

  • At this time, all Siuslaw National Forest recreation sites - with the exception of Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, certain group sites, and sites normally closed for the season - remain open. Visitors should check the Recreation Conditions Report prior to leaving home to ensure a site is open. The list may change with little advance notice. 
  • Be prepared to find services, including bathrooms and trash collection, limited or unavailable. Visitors should be prepared to be self-sufficient. Please protect and respect your public lands and pack out your waste
  • We will continue to monitor and evaluate safety conditions at our recreation sites and dispersed areas and will modify our plans as needed. Follow local and state guidelines for wearing face coverings and social distancing. Avoid crowding by sticking with your family unit and visiting during non-peak hours, and plan to be self-sufficient as facilities such as bathrooms many not be available.
