The closure will remain in effect until the fire hazard conditions improve
PORTLAND — Due to the current fire danger and nearby firefighting activity, PacifiCorp has closed all access to its Yale and Swift area properties in Southwest Washington Lewis River basin until further notice. This includes the Yale Day Use area and Swift Campground. The Beaver Bay Campground, Cougar Campground and Saddle Dam Day Use recreation sites were closed for the season on Sept. 5, 2022. PacifiCorp’s wildlife lands within and surrounding this area are now closed.
The closure will remain in effect until the fire hazard conditions improve. The primary concern is for the safety of employees, contractors and all of those who enjoy using the properties.
