Thorne Creek Fire Closures 9/9/2021

Updated 9/9/2021 to add the map and to reflect that Copper King Campground is open, with Thompson River Road closed just above (north) of the campground.

With the warm, dry weather over Labor Day weekend Thorne Creek Fire activity along the Thompson River corridor has picked up again, resulting in a few re-closures:

  • For public and firefighter safety, the Thompson River Road has been closed again at the end of the pavement just above Copper King Campground upstream to Barktable Road.
  • This road closure also results in the closure of Clark Memorial Campground. 
  • Barktable Road remains closed to all public use.
  • Please slow down while driving on the roads that are open in the fire area, keeping a close eye out for fire-related traffic.

A large area closure remains around the Thorne Creek Fire, in addition to the roads listed above. Visit the Closures Page for full information and maps.
