|Current Conditions:||Summer 2023: The Sisters Ranger District plans to reconstruct the non-paved portion of Forest Service Road 16 this spring and early summer. During the reconstruction, Forest Service Road 16 will be closed to all access, including vehicle, pedestrian, biking, and equestrian use, between the gate at Upper Three Creek Lake SnoPark south to Three Creek Lake to provide for public and operator safety due to heavy equipment and large truck traffic in the area. Due to the temporary road closure, Driftwood Campground, Three Creek Lake Campground and Three Creek Meadow Campground and Horse Camp, will delay their openings to July 21. Central Cascades Wilderness Permits for Park Meadow and Tam McArthur Rim Trailheads will also be delayed until July 21. Campgrounds and wilderness permits may be available earlier if road work is completed ahead of schedule. More Info|
