Several campgrounds administered by the US Forest Service Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest are temporarily unavailable and may not be available until as late as the end of July, according to Virginia Gibbons of the US Forest Service
The concessionaire’s special use permit is undergoing its renewal process and is not yet complete. Gibbons said people who have reservations are entitled to a refund if desired, or they can wait in hope of the permit being renewed before their reservation date.

- Union Creek Campground
- Farewell Bend Campground
- Fish Lake Campground & Day Use Area
