The map below provides a snapshot view of fire season regulation information according to ODF regulated use area. For specific information related to where you live or plan to travel, zoom into the area and click on the map. Areas outside ODF protection, such as the USDA Forest Service, will provide links to other agency fire regulation information.
Do your part to prevent wildfire. Here is a brief summary of fire restrictions that may affect you while visiting or working in an Oregon state forest this fire season:
- No smoking– except in the closed cab of your vehicle (doors on and windows rolled up) or your RV or camp trailer.
- No campfires outside of ODF developed campgrounds and designtated dispersed sites. No charcoal barbecues. (Propane stoves and gas barbecues are OK.)
- No non-industrial use of chainsaws – except as waived by the Forester.
- No motorized vehicles off roads except in designated OHV areas
- Designated OHV trails in areas covered by the waiver for OHV use remain open for use during Level 1 & 2 industrial fire precautions (IFPL).
- Under a Level 3 industrial fire precaution (IFPL 3) trails in areas covered by the waiver for OHV use close but the roads in the OHV areas remain open for riding.
- These areas include the Browns Camp Area, Lyda Camp Area, Jordan Creek Area, Diamond Mill Area, Trask and the BLM Upper Nestucca.
- No fireworks
- No welding, arc/torch cutting or grinding of metal
- No use of heat generated ammunition (tracer rounds) or exploding targets while target shooting
- Required for all vehicles operating in the woods (except dirt bikes and quads)

Current corporate closures
Thank you for checking access restrictions to private lands "before you go". The private landowners and Oregon Department of Forestry appreciate your effort.
The private land closure information found here is supplied during fire season and is provided by each participating landowner and coordinated by the Oregon Forest Industries Council (OFIC). Hopefully it is as current as operationally possible, but when in doubt most landowners have provided a phone number for your benefit.
The rationale that reflect landowner access policies and limitations are for various reasons. Many of them are beyond strictly fire related risks and those legal restrictions already in place by the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF). Closure logic here.
On behalf OFIC and our participating members of the Corporate Closures Information, we thank the public for their understanding and support of using access restrictions to their private timberlands as an effective Prevention tool when necessary. Oregon continues to be at even higher risk in the third year of exceptional drought conditions. There has been significant cost and loss of both public and private resources from wildfires in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Preventing just one accidental human caused fire under these extreme conditions is our goal. We appreciate your cooperation in protecting these resources and the habitat they provide to Oregon’s fish, wildlife and recreational opportunities.
