Recreation Management Supplementary Rules
Supplementary Rules for Recreation Areas on Roseburg District BLM lands were published in the Federal Register on March 10, 1995, Vol 60, No. 47 page 13165.
Supplementary Rules were established to set the standards of conduct for persons using public lands and the penalties that may be imposed for failure to obey the regulations. Most rules apply to developed recreation areas, however, some apply to any public lands where recreation uses may occur. The rules are designed to augment existing laws contained in the Code of Federal Regulations; and to ensure safe, enjoyable and environmentally sound visitation on the public lands, free from unwarranted disturbance.
- Overnight camping is prohibited in designated Research Natural Areas unless otherwise permitted by the authorized officer.
- Within the North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River Corridor, overnight camping is prohibited except at designated campgrounds and camping along the North Umpqua Trail between one-hundred feet and five-hundred feet from the trail, or by special permit issued by the authorized officer.
- In designated campgrounds and all other public lands open to camping, overnight camping is restricted to 14 days, either through a number of separate visits or through continuous occupation, subject to payment of camping fees at developed sites. Upon reaching the 14 day limit, occupants and all their possessions must leave Roseburg District BLM lands for a minimum of 14 consecutive days.
Restrictions at Designated Campgrounds
- Payment of campground fees must be made within one-half hour after arrival.
- Campground users must occupy a campsite the first night of their stay; pre-payment to hold an unoccupied campsite is not allowed. After the first night, users may not leave personal property unattended for more than 24 hours, unless otherwise permitted by the authorized officer.
- Use of shower facilities is restricted to campground occupants who have paid the campsite registration fee, unless otherwise permitted by the authorized officer.
- No person shall operate or use any audio or motorized equipment, or create or allow obtrusive noises (human or animal) in a manner that disturbs other visitors between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m.
- Animals are not allowed in day-use areas except in areas designated for pets, or situations requiring a seeing eye or hearing ear dog. Pets must be restrained and under control of a person at all times.

Motorized vehicle use is prohibited on trails designated for hikers, mountain bikers or horseback riders, unless otherwise permitted by the authorized officer.
Open-pit campfires are prohibited on the south side (trail area) of the North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River Corridor during fire season. Dates of fire season are determined annually by Douglas Forest Protective Assoc.
No person shall discharge a firearm within one-half mile of a developed recreation site or area; or across or within 100 feet of any designated recreation trail. A list of trails is maintained in the Roseburg District Office.
Camping limits are established to reduce the incidence of long-term unauthorized occupancy, while permitting legitimate camping on the public lands administered by the Roseburg District. Authority of these supplementary rules is contained in 43 CFR, chapter II, subpart 8360.0-3 and 8365.1-6. Persons who fail to comply with these provisions may be subject to the penalties provided in 43 CFR 8360.0-7 and 43 CFR 9262.1, which include a fine not to exceed $1000.00 and/or imprisonment for not to exceed 12 months.
