PORTLAND – Campers in Oregon who have reserved Memorial Day weekend sites higher than 3,500 feet might be getting refunds due to late-season snow.
Not all Oregon campsites will be open for the unofficial start of summer.
Gates at higher-elevation campgrounds, like Trillium Lake, will likely be closed well into June.
Campers who have booked space there, or at Frog Lake or Timothy Lake, will probably be getting a phone call in the coming days.
"What is going to happen is, folks that have made reservations at high campgrounds will be getting a phone call and refunded," said Jeree Mills with the U.S. Forest Service.
Low elevation sites either opened last weekend or will open for the coming weekend.
As a reminder, reservations are not mandatory for Oregon campsites. Each campsite holds 20 percent of its spaces for day-of arrivals. Sites are first come, first served.
