Sacramento, California – In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District has closed visitor centers and project offices to the public, while day use areas and boat ramps remain open and available.

Currently open USACE campgrounds will honor reservations made on, or before, Friday, March 20, and campers are able to stay for the entirety of their reservation. Reservations with a scheduled arrival date after March 20 are cancelled and refunds are provided through Recreation One-Stop (1-877-444-6777 or recreation.gov).

USACE will delay the opening of seasonal campgrounds until the situation involving COVID-19 is resolved. All other events, including USACE-sponsored activities, interpretive programs, tours and site visits are postponed until further notice.

The Corps of Engineers regrets any inconvenience caused by these closures, but USACE must keep the safety and health of the public, as well as its employees, as a top priority. These preventative measures also allows the Corps to continue to deliver its other critical services uninterrupted during this difficult time.

Additional information and updates on modifications, closures, and other restrictions related to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Sacramento District can be found at our website https://www.spk.usace.army.mil/ and on our Facebook (@SacramentoDistrict) and Twitter (@USACESacramento) pages.
