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, motorized recreation and firewood cutting.
After-dark and overnight use are not allowed and camp fires are not allowed.
The county manages 3,000 acres of forest using sustainable practices. All activities are done in accordance with the Oregon Forest Practices Act.
The revenue from county forests is used to support operations of Clackamas County Parks and Forests.
We maintain about 1,000 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.
