2020 Temporary Closures and Delays in Nestucca Area

The Nestucca Access Road will be closed to all through traffic for construction between Elk Creek and Davidson pit (gravel section), mile post 12.76 to 15.44 until late fall 2020. Detours will use the Bald Mountain and Bible Creek Access Roads. No public access will be allowed during these time periods. Elk Bend campground will be temporarily closed. Alder Glen campground will remain open, accessed only from the west. Fan Creek and Dovre campgrounds will remain open, accessed only from the east. The Upper Nestucca OHV trail system will also remain open during all time periods.

Overview:

The Nestucca River Recreation Area takes travelers along a slow, leisurely route that winds through Oregon's Coast Range on the Nestucca River National Back Country Byway. The Byway runs adjacent to the Nestucca River. Whether you are exploring by car, motorcycle or bicycle, you'll find a riverside picnic table or camping spot at any of four BLM campgrounds located along the route. There are 37 campsites in the Alder Glen, Dovre, Fan Creek and Elk Bend Recreation Sites that offer steel fire rings, picnic tables, potable water and restrooms.

Know Before You Go:

Camping is limited to Alder Glen, Dovre, Fan Creek, and Elk Bend Campgrounds. Campsites are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fires are limited to the steel fire rings or BBQ grills provided. Firewood collection is NOT allowed at the developed campgrounds. Trash: Pack-it in, pack-it out. Caution: Log trucks may be encountered throughout the year. The Byway is open year-round but may become hazardous due to snow and ice. Point of Interest:

The Nestucca OHV Area is located in the Nestucca Backcountry Byway, and includes Whipup Flat, Elk Flat, and Grassy Flat. Oregon ATV permits required.
