CENTRAL OREGON -- The Deschutes National Forest is getting ready to open 38 campgrounds this Friday. Jean Nelson-Dean with the Forest Service tells KBND about the adjustments they’ve made to ensure the public’s safety during this pandemic. She recommends bringing your own water as pumps won’t be functional this year to protect against the spread of COVID. Some campgrounds will remain closed due to operational maintenance such as wood-clearing and snow removal. Nelson-Dean says reservations are advised as it is first-come, first-serve without one. Bookings of campsites made prior to Friday are refundable. After that, reservations can be made up to two days beforehand. A full list of campgrounds and their opening dates can be found on the forest service webpage.
