Campground: Liberty Lake Regional Park campground will be open for the season from May 1 – September 30, 2021.  Make your reservation for a tent site, a standard or premium RV site, or a cabin today! 

Parks Administration Office (Located at 404 N. Havana St): The office has re-opened to the public and resumed pre-COVID business hours. We are now open five days a week - Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. Note: (1) Hours may be variable due to a staffing shortage. Please call ahead at (509) 477-4730 before heading down to make sure our office is open! (2) Starting Monday, August 23rd, per State Mandate, you will be asked to wear a mask before entering the building, regardless of vaccination status. 

Parks: The Park Services Season begins May 1, 2021. Spokane County does not perform cleaning, disinfection or sanitizing of its play structures, parks, athletic courts or fields. Restrooms will typically be cleaned 1-7 times per week. This does not meet COVID-19 cleaning guidelines as recommended by the CDC. Use at your own risk. Where portable restrooms are available (e.g. Conservation Futures trailheads and other locations), the public is encouraged to bring their own toilet paper, hand sanitizer and wipes as an extra precaution. 

Special Events, Shelter and Camp Caro Lodge Rentals: Spokane County is currently accepting reservations for events taking place May 1 - September 30, 2021.  Event organizers must be fully aware of risks and hazards connected with the activity, including potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus and agree to comply with all Federal, State, and Spokane Regional Health District requirements. State guidance regarding weddings and events can be found here.

Trails: Trails are "accessible" (subject to "Closed When Muddy" trail use restrictions), but may have limited capacity at the trailheads due to heavy use. In addition, portable restrooms may not have toilet paper or hand sanitizer due to a rise in theft - visitors are encouraged to bring their own toilet paper, hand sanitizer and wipes.
