All state forests closed to public use due to fire danger
SALEM, Ore. — All ODF-managed forestland is currently closed to public entry and use, including the Santiam, Tillamook, Clatsop, Gilchrist and Sun Pass state forests.
This also includes ODF-managed forestlands in Lane, Douglas, Coos, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath, Polk, Lincoln, & Benton counties. The Tillamook and Clatsop closures are until at least Sunday, Sept. 13 at 11 p.m. All other closures are until further notice. Closure is necessary due to the current extreme fire conditions that are endangering life, forest resources, and property as well as very limited fire and emergency response resources.
