Campsites at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park are reopening on Monday, June 21, meaning all public resources at the park are available to the public again.

That includes Sugarloaf’s parking lots, trails, restrooms, Visitor Center and Robert Ferguson Observatory. However, campsites now have different rules and procedures in place, and social distancing protocols are still enforced throughout the park.

Here’s how camping will be different at Sugarloaf Campground:

  1. The following sites remain closed: 8, 13, 17, 35, 41.
  2. Only two cars per site, with one family group and no outside visitors, is allowed.
  3. Each site will have its own portable toilet (porta potty) for the exclusive use of that site. The toilets will be cleaned upon campsite turnover.
  4. We encourage visitors in self-contained RVs to make use of their own facilities rather than the park facilities.
  5. The communal bathrooms and showers will remain open and cleaned 3-4 times per day.
  6. We recommend bringing your own soap along with cleaning supplies such as wipes.
  7. The tent rental program is open, but with a gap of at least one day between each rental. We will disinfect tents between each use.

Reservations for Sugarloaf campsites may be made 48 hours in advance at Reserve a tent at For same-day first-come-first-served reservations, please call the park at 10 a.m. on the day you want to arrive at 707-833-5712.

We are providing additional cleaning services free of charge. However, we are asking for a $10 donation per day—only from those that are able—to cover our additional costs.

We ask all park visitors to adhere to the Sonoma County health ordinance guidelines, which require use of masks or face coverings when unable to keep a minimum distance of six feet from others not in your immediate household. Anyone with coronavirus symptoms (commonly a fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath) should not come. Those with reservations may cancel with no penalty. For more on coronavirus symptoms:
