PG&E closes recreational facilities across service area to ensure social distancing during COVID-19 pandemic

NORTH COAST, Calif. – After careful consideration surrounding the dynamic situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep its employees, public and communities safe, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. has made the decision to close its camping and day-use recreational sites across its service area, until at least June, at which time it will reassess the closure plan.

PG&E is committed to providing safe and reliable energy and ensuring business continuity in these challenging times.

For the safety of the public and staff, PG&E has temporarily closed its 38 campgrounds and day-use sites, and reduced maintenance associated with the specific risks of restroom cleaning and trash collection.

From the Pit River country in the Cascade Range to the King's River region in the southern Sierra Nevada, PG&E’s recreational facilities have been available for the public to enjoy for many decades.

Locations such as Lake Almanor, Lake Spaulding and Lake Britton are engineered to create clean energy through a large hydroelectric system.

These sites feature PG&E campgrounds and picnic areas. Most of the lakes also offer fishing, swimming and boating.

The only PG&E parks in the North Bay and North Coast are in Mendocino and Lake counties. There are three campgrounds and 3 day-use areas: Trout Creek Campgrounds in Mendocino County, and Pogie Point, Pillsbury Pines, Fuller Grove Campgrounds and Fuller Grove Day use area and boat ramp, and Navy Campgrounds in Lake County.

The window to make camping reservations usually opens in April, but it has now been pushed to June, with the potential to be pushed out further.

The PG&E camping season is generally Memorial Day through Labor Day. At present, the opening date for campgrounds is set for June 29.

Editor’s note: This story has been corrected to show that Pogie Point, Pillsbury Pines, Fuller Grove Campgrounds and Fuller Grove Day use area and boat ramp, and Navy Campgrounds are in Lake County, not Mendocino County.
