Firewood permits are currently available for Stanton Park, Whistlers Bend, and Pickett Park. The permit is valid for the removal of one standard size or smaller pickup load of firewood at $25.00 per load. NO flatbed trucks or trailers allowed. If you are interested in purchasing a permit, please stop by our office located at 1036 SE Douglas Ave, Rm 116. 


We are pleased to announce that we expect to open up the newly renovated north loop of our Umpqua Dunes campground by April 13th. The north loop will include 34 full hookup sites and 5 cabins. We are currently accepting reservations for the Cabins from May 24th and on. We hope to open up the reservation window for the campsites no later than April 13th barring any unforeseen construction delays.

We also expect to open a new retail building at Umpqua Dunes in March. The retail building will feature a convenience store, laundromat, Pizza kitchen, and an ATV parts and repair shop. Clear gas and propane will also be available for purchase. We expect the retail building to be a big success with our customers and we are excited for you to see our newly renovated campground.
