Armitage Park campsite expansion in the works – community feedback needed

Armitage Park campsite expansion in the works – community feedback needed
Posted on 07/01/2019

Lane County Parks is evaluating three options for increasing the number of campsites at its popular Armitage Park, north of Eugene.

 

“Armitage is one of our most popular campgrounds and is busy with RV camping year-round,” said Parks Manager Brett Henry. “Increasing the number of RV campsites will help enhance recreation opportunities close to the metro area.”

 

There are three levels of expansion under consideration. The first, and smallest, would add up to 9 new RV sites. The second option would add up to 19 new RV sites. The third option would add up to 46 possible RV sites. The expansion would occur in the northwest area of the park.

 

An online survey is available at www.lanecounty.org/parks. Community members are encouraged to fill out the survey so their input can help guide the future of the park.

 

Expansion of campsites includes increasing the capacity of the park’s water, sewer and electrical systems to accommodate the additional spaces. Some expansion of the park’s sewer system will occur later this year in order to ensure the park can continue to handle the current level of use.

 

Preliminary cost estimates place the expansion options between $295,000 and $1,500,000. Lane County Parks is funded primarily through user fees; the division does not receive property tax funding.
