News Release from Lane Co. Government

Posted on FlashAlert: September 2nd, 2022 3:37 PM

Recent fire growth has prompted an increase in evacuation levels for areas around the Cedar Creek Fire. View updated maps at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/CedarCreek.

 

Campers, hikers and other people planning to visit during the holiday weekend are encouraged to make alternate plans, and – at minimum – be aware of the threat of wildfire and lack of communications infrastructure in rural areas.

 

LEVEL 2 (Be Set)

 

The following areas are being issued a new Level 2 (Be Set) evacuation notice by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office:

  • Forest Service Road 19 (Aufderheide Drive) from milepost 20 (just east of Kiahanie Campground) to milepost 35 (south of Roaring River Campground). This includes the Box Canyon Campground, Box Canyon Staging Area/Horse Camp and Skookum Creek Campground and all surrounding dispersed camping areas.

 

 

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office has also upgraded the following areas to a Level 2 (Be Set) evacuation notice:

  • Islet Campground, North Waldo Campground and Harralson Horse Camp
  • All dispersed camping and recreation in the area east of the Waldo Lake shoreline between the United State Forest Service forest closure to the north, and south to just north of Shadow Bay Campground, and east to the Charlton Lake and Taylor Lake areas.
    • At this time, Shadow Bay Campground is not included in the evacuation notice.

 

Additionally, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has upgraded the following areas adjacent to the Lane County evacuation notice to Level 2 (Be Set):

  • Irish and Taylor Lake campgrounds and dispersed camping in the Charlton and Taylor lakes areas and north along the Pacific Crest Trail to Lindick Lake.

 

 

Level 2 means: You must prepare to leave at a moment’s notice, and this may be the only notice that you receive.

 

Public safety personnel cannot guarantee they will be able to notify you if conditions rapidly deteriorate. Continue to closely monitor your phone, local media and www.LaneCountyOR.gov/CedarCreek for information.
