Jackson County Parks takes the health and safety of our guests seriously.  We strive to meet guest expectations on restroom and facility cleanliness and are committed to maintaining clean, well-sanitized facilities.  We will continue to work with state and local health agencies and adapt as needed during this rapidly changing situation.  Refer to this page for current management approaches in the future.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions pertaining to COVID-19.

When do you clean restrooms and other park facilities?

Restrooms are cleaned on a regular schedule, depending upon usage and season.  Busy parks, such as the Southern Oregon RV Park, Emigrant Lake, and other open campgrounds are cleaned and sanitized at least daily.  Other sites, such as boat ramps and dispersed recreation sites are cleaned on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule at a minimum.  Individual restrooms will be posted with a cleaning schedule for guest reference.  Yurts and cabins are always cleaned prior to each reservation.  As our summer season approaches and park use increases, as well as park staffing levels, these cleaning schedules will change and service will occur on a daily basis at all sites.

Are your cleaning supplies approved for use against the Sars-Cov-2 virus?

We currently use Betco Pine Quat and Clorox Commercial Disinfecting Spray.  According to the manufacturer’s websites, both disinfectants are effective against the Sars-Cov-2 virus.

Do you provide disinfectant supplies, such as hand sanitizer to park visitors?

No, park users are expected to be responsible for their own safety and hygiene.  As such, they should come to park facilities with whatever they feel is necessary to maintain their own health and well-being.  The following website provides good information on how to further protect yourself, https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/DISEASESCONDITIONS/DISEASESAZ/Pages/emerging-respiratory-infections.aspx
