Many developed recreation sites that were closed following the historic Labor Day windstorm will be reopening at noon on Thursday, September 24.

Downed trees and hanging limbs that created hazards at recreation sites are still being cleaned up; some day use recreation sites, access roads, and campgrounds will remain temporarily closed until further notice. With the reduced fire danger due to cooler, wetter weather, campfire restrictions have been lifted.

"The number of trees and limbs that came down in the storm earlier this month made many of our recreation sites unsafe for visitors," said Robert Sanchez, forest supervisor. "Some of these places, like Cape Perpetua and Drift Creek Falls, were especially hard hit. We appreciate people's patience as we work
to clean up these sites and make them safe for everyone to enjoy again."

The recreation sites that will remain temporarily closed are listed on the following link below. Some campgrounds that
typically close for the season at the end of September will not reopen this season; they are identified on the link as well. The closed day use sites will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
