COVID-19 UPDATE / POSTED 5/25/20 at 12PM:

APPLEGATE LAKE - HART TISH PARK / SQUAW LAKES/ JACKSON CAMPGROUNDS / CARBERRY CAMPGROUND / WATKINS CAMPGROUND / SEATTLE BAR DAY-USE AREA.

Thank you all for your patience. We are diligently working on a Covid-plan that will allow us to OPEN in a limited capacity. This is a day-by-day issue, with ever-changing laws/rules/guidelines. Here is the most up-to-date information regarding all of the Applegate Lake facilities:

APPLEGATE LAKE: HART TISH PARK is OPEN

There will be some Covid restrictions at Hart Tish, please be patient with us. This is all new territory, and we are doing our best to give the public some much needed recreation opportunities.

Please continue to read the applicable (some) COVID RESTRICTIONS.

SQUAW LAKES

Squaw will OPEN on FRIDAY 5/29/20 at 4PM.

Please continue to check this website for the most updated information.

Portage Service is $15 per-trip. You will need to Load and un-load yourself. Camp Host will not assist (Covid).

Water pump will NOT be operational this season. Please bring your own water.

Please bring your own Toilet Paper. Bathrooms will NOT be stocked. See Camp-Host for a roll (if needed).

Squaw Group sites #16 & 17 (and #17 bathroom) will be closed for the season.

Please be respectful, we are doing our best to accommodate you during these difficult times.

JACKSON CAMPGROUND

Jackson will OPEN on FRIDAY 5/29/20 at 4PM. Please continue to check this website for the most updated information.

CARBERRY CAMPGROUND / WATKINS CAMPGROUND / SEATTLE BAR DAY-USE AREA:

At this time, we do not expect to open these facilities in 2020. This is an exceptionally bad water-year, and these facilities typically get very little use, when the water gets low. Right now, we are 42-feet below typical water level, and we don't expect it to improve much as the season goes-on. We will focus our efforts on the higher use facilities and hope for a better water-year next season (and no-covid). Of course, this could also change, and opening may be possible later in the season. Please continue to check this website for the most updated information.

COVID RESTRICTIONS.

Hart Tish Park will have significant restrictions, plus all the standard covid guidelines. If the park gets too crowded, we may close the front gates to minimize capacity and safe social distancing. The upper bathrooms will remain closed. We advise bringing your own soap/ hand sanitizers and toilet paper. The General Store will have minimum supplies, so please bring everything you may need for a safe and enjoyable weekend. As always, there is no cell service or wi-fi here, so plan accordingly. Additional on site COVID notices will be applicable.

RESERVATIONS / REFUNDS

If you made reservations, and the facility is closed, we will attempt to cancel your reservation a few days prior to your arrival. We believe this will give you a full-refund with recreation.gov. HOWEVER, I do not control recreation.gov (wish I did), so their policy may change.

As always, if you cancel your own reservation, and the facility is open, you will be charged the applicable cancellation fees.

If your camping date has already passed, and the facility was closed, we will handle each circumstance on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is to give you a full credit. Please email us at applegatelake@gmail.com

Hope this helps. Please check back to this site for the most up-to date information
