Forests are a key to the quality of life in Clackamas County. County forest properties are open for most day-use activities except target shooting or “plinking”, motorized recreation and firewood cutting. After-dark and overnight use are not allowed and camp fires are not allowed. For more information about public use of county forests, please refer to the Forest Recreational Use Policies page below.
There are about 2,800 acres of forest managed utilizing sustainable forest management practices including scheduled timber harvest and reforestation. All activities are done in accordance with the Oregon Forest Practices Act. Revenue is used to support operations of Clackamas County Parks and Forests.
There are about 1,100 acres of forest where there is no scheduled timber harvest. The majority of these acres are Clackamas County Parks where trees are only removed for public safety concerns or infrastructure development.
