Smoky Season Trims Tourist Numbers

Sep 22, 2017

You don't have to sell people in the state of Jefferson on the region's charms.  And tourism certainly helps pay the bills around here. 

But are we getting a rep as a place that's on fire or smoky or both?  It's been a rough fire season, with a number of events canceled by smoke concerns. 

Travel Oregon and Discover Siskiyou are in the business of convincing people they want to come here.  We check in with them to see if that job has become more difficult. 

We also visit with an Rita Manley-King, owner of Big Foot RV Park and Cabins in Happy Camp, where smoke was especially bad.
