Coronavirus & Adjusted Harbor Operations

 -- UPDATE: 27 March, 2020 - Public Health Order -- 

By order of the Del Norte Public Health Officer, all short term rentals, defined as sleeping accommodations for a duration of less than 30 days per guest, are prohibited in Del Norte County until the declared COVID-19 emergency ends. This will impact guests intending to stay at our two RV Parks (Redwood Harbor Village and Bayside RV Park). The complete text of the order is available here:


UPDATE: 20 March, 2020 - Letter from CEO/Harbor Master Charlie Helms

In order to comply with Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-33-20 that directs Californians, "to stay at home or at their place of residence" we will no longer offer in-person public hours at the Harbor Office.

We are still keeping the office staffed during regular hours which are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, we will not be opening the office for in-person transactions. Credit card transactions will be processed over the phone, and if you need to pay on an account by check, please use the mail slot located in the front door of the Harbor Office at 101 Citizens Dock Road. This social distancing should help minimize health risks for our clients and our staff.

We will be keeping the public and RV Park restrooms open and clean to the best of our ability and will continue to offer support services to our commercial fishing fleet tenants. The District Security staff will continue to provide after-hours safety and security patrols.

Our Harbor District restaurants are open and are offering take-out service and are also providing outdoor seating options in their efforts to follow guidelines on proper social distancing. The health and safety of our tenants, staff team members, guests and friends has always been our highest priority and we are striving to do all that is within our power to keep you safe while still meeting your service needs.

Our Del Norte County Department of Health and Human Services and the Del Norte County Office of Emergency Services,, are both working to keep all of us informed about this unprecedented assault on public health. Let's all work together as best as we can to contain this threat to our health and economy. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
