Logging requires weekday closures at Scout Lake

Scout Lake Group Campground and Day Use Area will be closed during the weekdays into June while logging operations are conducted as part of the Greater Suttle Lake Vegetation Management Project.

The temporary closures, required for safety, will be in place Mondays at 6 a.m. through Fridays at 4 p.m. The area will be open to the public after 4 p.m. on Fridays through the weekend, re-closing again on Monday mornings. The area will be fully open during Memorial Day weekend, including on the Monday holiday. Campground reservations on the weekends after Memorial Day weekend will be honored. The operation is expected to continue through early- to mid-June.

The project is being implemented under the Greater Suttle Lake Vegetation Management Project to fall and remove dead, dying, and diseased trees within campgrounds, day use areas, organizational camps, and along roads in and around the greater Suttle Lake area.
