TSF Browns Camp Campground is closed.
I just wanted to give you all the “heads up” about some activity that will be going on in Browns Camp Campground while the campground remains closed.
In the coming weeks, the timber sale that is operating behind the campground will be hauling logs out Scoggins Road through Browns Camp Campground. While the timber hauling is going on, the gate to the campground will be open daily. While it might be tempting to camp or stage in Browns Camp, please don’t. The gate will be closed and locked at the end of each day meaning that anyone who parks in the facility runs the risk of being trapped when the loggers leave.
If you do get locked behind the gate to Browns Camp and can find cell service, you can call the Forest Grove District Office Monday – Friday, 8AM – 5PM for help at 503.357.2191. After hours or on weekends you can call the Tillamook County non-Emergency dispatch number at 503.815.3911.
The trails in the Browns Camp are open, unless noted on the OHV Trail Report, remain open. The campground will re-open to the public in April 2013.
