LAKEVIEW, OR — The Fremont-Winema National Forest is removing or replacing toilet facilities at several sites in Lake and Klamath counties in the coming weeks.

Work started this week to remove the vault toilet at Aspen Cabin on the Lakeview Ranger District and replace it with a new vault toilet.  That work is expected to be completed early next week.

Work at Spring Creek Day Use Area and Campground on the Chiloquin Ranger District is expected to start around October 26 and be completed by October 29.  The flush toilet at the day use area is being replaced with a new vault toilet and all above ground infrastructure is being removed at the campground.  The campground has been decommissioned for more than 10 years and this is the final step to reclaim and restore the site.


The final sites are located on the Klamath Ranger District.

Rocky Point Boat Launch will be the next priority, starting work October 29 and completing replacement of the vault toilet by November 2.

Finally, work will be done at Great Meadows Sno Park to remove the existing vault toilets November 3 through 4.

Most of the recreation sites are closed for the season.  There will be barricades installed at Rocky Point Boat Launch to close the site while work is occurring.  Area residents and visitors are advised to avoid these areas while work is being done.

Great Meadows Sno Park is the only site that is still open for the season.  The east side of the parking lot will not be accessible, but the work should not impact access to most of the site.

All work is expected to be complete by Friday, November 5.  The work is being done through a contractor and is a coordinated effort across the Forest to complete these four projects efficiently.  The four projects have been in various stages of planning and funding approval over the past several years.
