F.A.Q.s

  • Which fires are impacting the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region? 
    In the McKenzie River area, the Horse Creek complex of fires. In Oakridge/Westfir, the Sisters fires.
  • Are campfires allowed? 
    While restrictions may vary from campground to campground, you are generally safe assuming that no open flames are permitted at this time. And definitely not for dispersed camping. Cookstoves may be permitted at some state campgrounds. Stock up on deli sandwiches and cold to-go options at local stores.
  • Are wildfires common in Oregon? Is this a typical "fire season"? 
    We are glad to say no, this is not normal.
