Some state forests to re-open Friday, Sept. 18
The Tillamook and Clatsop state forests will re-open to the public on Friday, Sept. 18, along with smaller ODF parcels in northwest Oregon. This also includes ODF-managed lands in Columbia, Lincoln, Polk, and Benton counties. The public is urged to know before you go about potential restrictions on campfires, off-road vehicle use and other fire prevention measures in the midst of an unprecedented fire season in Oregon.
The Gilchrist and Sun Pass state forests along with ODF-managed lands in Klamath, Jackson, Josephine, Coos, Douglas and Lane counties remain closed due to extreme fire danger.
The Santiam State Forest remains closed until further notice.
