Jones Beach Changes

Posted on 21st March 2014 at 15:55

New restrictions at a popular recreational beach near Clatskanie are now in effect. The Oregon Department of State Lands now says that Jones Beach is closed to all uses from 10 pm to 5 am each day. The DSL also says that All-Terrain Vehicles, or ATV’s, are also prohibited. Jones Beach is under the jurisdiction of the State Land Board and the DSL, and they say that these new rules are in response to comments and complaints from nearby residents and local law enforcement. A number of complaints about illegal activities and habitat damage from the vehicles have been coming in. New signs about the restrictions are now being installed. Violators will be subject to citations for criminal trespassing and other penalties.
