In an email from Andy -Man of Travel and Grill - a warning for the upcoming TIMOTHY LAKE trip [June 11-15]:
To all concerned in the world:
Found out from PGE today that the North Arm campground will be closed until (at least) July 1st. Therefore, we will now be staying at the Gone Creek Campground starting June 11th, leaving on the 15th. The campground has a good boat ramp, and we have reserved camp sites of #41 and #43. Check in will be at 2 pm. Each spot will hold six campers, extra parking will probably be at the boat ramp. Gone Creek is the first campground you come to when approaching Timothy on the South end.
When you first approach Timothy Lake, you will see the Oak Fork day use area, that has a boat launch. Continue past the turn off for the day use area and next you will see the Gone Creek Campground. If you see the Hood View Campground, you've driven past Gone Creek.
The Oak Fork of the Clackamas river comes near there and it will be a shorter run to the north arm than from the other campgrounds in the area.
Best to all,
P.S. If you think of anyone I may have missed on this mailing, please forward it on to them
