Long Winter Prompts Cancellation of Diamond Lake, Broken Arrow Campground Reservations

All reservations for the Diamond Lake and Broken Arrow campgrounds (Oregon) have been canceled due to the amount of snow on the ground–affecting campers who booked for the weekend of June 4.

As per a report, Chris Bentley of Umpqua National Forest said, “while we greatly need this good snowpack to mitigate the otherwise drought-stricken area, we definitely recognize the inconvenience and disappointment this might cause to those counting on being able to camp that weekend.”

Bentley said that because of the amount of snow on the ground, RVs, trailers, and other large vehicles would not be able to navigate the campground areas safely.

Furthermore, the teams that oversee the water supply and other amenities available at the campground have yet to arrive at the campground to perform their work.

All reservation fees will be refunded, and anyone affected by the cancellations should be notified via www.recreation.gov shortly.

For anybody with canceled reservations, we do offer first-come, first-serve camping opportunities at many campgrounds in the area, including sites at Little River and Steamboat Falls,” Bentley said.

“Many other first-come, first-serve campgrounds can be found to the south on the Tiller Ranger District as well.”

Crews will be monitoring the conditions of Broken Arrow and Diamond Lake campground areas weekly, leading to the new opening day on June 10.

Looks like the campgrounds are closed due to deep snow, but that just means there’s a chance to explore new places in Oregon! Maybe consider a trip to Crater Lake National Park or the Umpqua National Forest for some nature time. The prolonged winter conditions could make for some splendid views and new adventures to remember.

Just wanted to give you a heads up – if your camping plans got messed up because of the cancellations at Diamond Lake and Broken Arrow, consider checking out places like Lemolo Lake or Toketee Campground nearby. Stay in the loop on road conditions and campground availability for a hassle-free adventure!

It’s a bummer about the cancellations, but exploring Lemolo Lake or Toketee Campground could be a great alternative. Remember to stay updated on road conditions. I faced a similar situation once and found trying out new sites ended up making for unexpected fun!
