Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest to open for camping

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Cal Fire’s Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit announced that the Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest will be open for camping starting on Monday, June 29.

The Calso Campgrounds will be open with 14 campsites available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are accepted.

There will be safeguards in place to protect the public and to stop the spread of COVID-19. Each of the 14 sites will be available for a single household not to exceed six people and a single-vehicle.

The group campsites at Ridge Camp, Horse Camp, and Crawler Camp will remain closed to camping and group gatherings.

The Calso Campground is a rustic setting with no running water with one vault and one pit style outhouse. Campers are required to provide their own water and personal hygiene items. There is no trash collection at Calso Camp so campers are asked to “Pack it out if you pack it in.”

Campers are encouraged to bring their own cleaning supplies to provide for a sanitary camp environment. Restrooms will be cleaned and restocked daily by forest staff members.

The Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest does allow for small trailers or recreational vehicles if they fit within an available campsite, however, there are no RV hook-ups and there is no dump station located on the property.
