Cottonwood Canyon State Park

General Advisory

07/28/2017 to 09/30/2017
The gate allowing trailer access to the John Day River on Starvation Lane will be closed on Friday, July 28. This will prevent vehicles from backing trailers into the river for heavier boats and large rafts. Kayaks and smaller craft that can be carried can be walked around the gate. The gate is being closed due to low water in the John Day River and the destruction of natural resources along the river bank.
