OR: Campground visitors packed out 10 bags of trash from site

Listen to this story

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. — A concerned campground visitor Aumun Strickling tells News 10 she packed out bags of garbage from an Applegate Lake campground. Most of which wasn’t hers including two full-size tires.

She says she’s concerned the prices are going up at the campground due to a sign she saw from the U.S. Forest Service stapled to a tree.

The sign read, “Attention campers. The Forest Service is considering the future management of these dispersed sites. Why? Large amounts of garbage, human waste, and toilet paper are being left at these dispersed campsites. There are also problems with tree cutting, vehicles driving off of roads and trampled plants. We are concerned about the damage to natural resources.”
