KLAMATH FALLS, OR -- Winter storms caused severe damage to parts of the Klamath National Forest, in southern Oregon and northern California. Officials have temporarily closed several areas to address public safety concerns in campgrounds and forest service roads, including:

  • Grider Creek Campground, due to extensive flooding, debris and fallen trees;
  • China Point River Access, due to landslides;
  • Clear Creek Road, from South Clear Creed Rd to the end, due to landslides;
  • Numerous Forest Service roads in the Happy Camp/Oak Knoll area.


As snow levels recede, they expect to find more damage left by freezing weather and flooding. The Forest service says driving conditions in remote areas can be hazardous this time of year, due to slides, unstable road surfaces, fallen trees and holes hidden under snow. 


They ask visitors to call the Forest Supervisor's Office at 530-842-6131 to report damaged roads and trail conditions. Updates are available on the Forest website, Facebook and Twitter
