California State Parks announced today that it is opening campsites at Sonoma Coast State Park and Salt Point State Park to residents affected by Northern California fires.
Although not an official evacuation site, campsites will be open to meet the temporary immediate needs of displaced residents.
Campsites will be available at Bodega Dunes Campground and Wrights Beach within Sonoma Coast State Park and Woodside Campground within Salt Point State Park. Services available at these sites include showers, bathrooms, drinking water and trash bins.
While California State Parks is providing campsites, these sites do not have the full services or aid provided at official evacuation centers. State Parks may only accommodate those who are self-contained. Those needing services which include food, bedding and personal services should locate to a designated evacuation center.
Sonoma County’s evacuation centers do have room and important services are available for residents in need of shelter and aid. A list of shelters is available on the county website.
California State Parks is working closely with fire officials and will respond to any evacuation notices should they arise.
