Wildfire ConditionsUpdated May 2, 2023
Like many states in the West, Oregon has seen an increase in the size of wildfires in recent years. While natural wildfires are a part of healthy forest ecosystems, uncontrolled wildfires caused by people can endanger lives, homes and vital natural resources.
Many wildfire-impacted areas remain closed, while others have reopened but still require caution when visiting. Here’s what you should know about visiting Oregon’s wildfire-impacted areas, and visiting during wildfire season in Oregon.
Before you head out, check road conditions at TripCheck and sign up for alerts and review emergency info, air quality data and latest fire updates at: Oregon Department of Forestry.
Visitors and residents are also encouraged to sign up for emergency mobile alerts on oralert.gov.
