LA PINE, OR -- The Cultus Lake Campground and Day-Use area is closed for the summer, due to what officials are calling a “serious public safety hazard.” The Deschutes National Forest announced Sunday the boat launch is still being evaluated for potential opening, this year. 

 

An in-depth review of the trees in the area uncovered at least 160 dead hazard trees and 300 that are diseased and could fall on people. The Forest Service plans to remove the affected trees in the fall, in an effort to reopen the campground for the 2018 season. 
 
They note there are more than 80 other campgrounds within the Deschutes National Forest that will be open this summer.
