At a sparsely attended open house Wednesday (March 6) in Roseburg, Ore., Douglas County Parks Director Rocky Houston discussed the proposed redesign for the Umpqua Dunes RV Park at the coast. It was also discussed Tuesday at a meeting held in Winchester Bay, according to The News-Review

The county purchased the park, formerly known as Discovery Point, from private owners in March 2018. The park is popular primarily with off-highway vehicle riders because of its access to the dunes. It’s part of the county’s effort to provide camping while generating additional revenue for the cash-strapped county government.

At a previous meeting in November, three proposals were put up for consideration on how the park might be redeveloped. Now, it’s down to one concept. The next step will be to turn that concept into a final plan, figure out about how much it will cost, and present the information to the Parks Advisory Board and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.

The redesign reduces the total number of camping sites from 101 to 88, but many of the sites are longer and many of them are pull-through sites that many who commented about the redesign said they wanted. Houston said some of the smaller sites currently aren’t used except during peak seasons.
