Recreating Around Wildfires

Published: September 07, 2017

Eugene, OR — Travel Lane County's "alerts page" provides links to sites that have all the wildfire information you need and our visitor services staff is monitoring updates daily, so check the website often or give us a call at 541.484.5307. Our first priority is to be sure locals and visitors are safe, so please take advantage of resources that are available from local, state and federal agencies.  

Whether you're an incoming Nebraska fan or an outdoor enthusiast looking for a fall hike, it can be challenging in Oregon right now.  But, that doesn't mean there aren't great opportunities to enjoy the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region.  

If visitors have reservations we encourage them to stay in contact with their lodging operator. Conditions change often and many member properties are hosting visitors, so don't assume you can't enjoy that vacation you have been waiting for all year. We've also included some indoor options in the event your outdoor experience isn't available and since Lane County covers 4,700 square miles we also have suggestions such as Florence's Rods 'N Rhodies Invitational Car Show this weekend!  Or maybe you've wanted to try sandboarding, a dune buggy ride or horseback riding on the coast.  Our members have you covered!  

Several Travel Lane County lodging members are providing special pricing for Lane County residents affected by the wildfires. In the event evacuations are necessary, the following hotels are offering special pricing (subject to availability):


  1. The Comfort Suites Eugene will offer the 10% manager's discount.  Call 541.343.7000.
  2. The Super 8 will offer a discounted rate of $80 plus tax. Call 541. 746.1314
  3. The Budget Lodge will offer a discounted rate of $70 plus tax. Call 541.688.1205

A hearty thank you to all the firefighters and support personnel who are risking their lives to contain these fires. We love this place and we appreciate how hard everyone is working to protect our communities and natural
