Lincoln County Parks Introduces New Reservation System

Lincoln County Parks in Oregon unveiled the implementation of a new reservation system for overnight camping at Moonshine Park for the 2024 season. The reservation system will address several pressing concerns, including capacity issues, safety hazards, and the preservation of natural resources while ensuring equal access to park facilities.

“We want to take this opportunity to address recent adjustments to the rules and regulations at Moonshine Park and clarify the reasons behind these changes. We understand that change can sometimes be challenging, especially when it impacts familiar routines and cherished activities,” Parks Supervisor Kelly Perry said in a press release.

The change is a reduction in the maximum number of individuals allowed per campsite, from ten to six. This decision stems from the need to relieve the burden on the park’s septic system, which has been operating beyond its capacity. The revised limit is expected to facilitate better resource management and maintain the availability and safety of campsites.

“This adjustment is necessary to alleviate strain on our septic system, which is currently over capacity. By limiting the number of people per campsite, we can better manage our resources and ensure that all campsites remain open, operational, and safe,” Perry added.

Additionally, restrictions on the number of vehicles per campsite have been introduced. Under the new guidelines, each campsite can accommodate one RV or vehicle and one additional vehicle. This policy aims to alleviate safety concerns associated with excessive parking, especially in critical areas such as fire lanes and main thoroughfares, by ensuring that vehicles are parked in designated areas only.

“We kindly ask for your cooperation in adhering to these updated rules and regulations. They are essential for the efficient, responsible, and safe management of our park facilities. Please be aware that enforcement of these rules will be in effect this summer,” Perry said.

Lincoln County Parks has also made adjustments to reservations for specific campground loops to balance equitable access for all visitors with the concerns of local residents. After a review, the B-loop will be available for reservations starting May 1, with 80% of bookings through the new system being from Lincoln County residents.

For day users, the park continues to offer 27 spaces, with fees remaining unchanged at $5 per day or $35 for an annual pass. To maintain safety and enjoyment for all, the park will strictly enforce parking regulations, especially during the peak summer season, to keep fire lanes and emergency access clear.
