Morgan Lake Closed due to Extreme Fire Danger

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 21, 2015

Morgan Lake is closed due to extreme fire danger effective immediately.  We have consulted with fire professionals in the area and am very concerned about the extreme dry conditions at the park.  This is one of the worst fire seasons in Eastern Oregon and we want to do everything possible to keep everyone safe in our community.  The camp host will remain at his post and signs will be displayed at the top and bottom of Morgan Lake Road.  The gate to the park will also be closed. 

When weather conditions change, the park will re-open for the remainder of the fall. 

Any questions can be directed to the Parks & Recreation Department  541-962-1352.
