Due to an unusually wet winter, many campgrounds in the Pacific Northwest are having delayed openings as operators find water related damages and hazards. The Siuslaw National Forest is one of those areas with 5 campground closures as of June 22, 2017. Most of these closures are near the coastal camping areas thanks to swollen rivers encroaching on day use areas and access roads.
The following campgrounds and use areas are currently closed until further notice:
- Carter Lake Campground
- Carter Lake Boat Ramp
- Horsfall Beach Campground
- Bluebill Campground
- Wild Mare Campground
- Dispersed beach camping near Horsfall Beach (most of the area is flooded)
Also be aware that many of the ATV trails and roads in the area are flooded and impassable. For more details visit the Siuslaw National Forest Alerts and Notices page.
