White dots show where Bear Camp Road is located. Right now the road is blocked from the Grants Pass side because of snow, and to the road damage from the Gold Beach side. If you plan to go to these areas, you should wait until the roads dry out and they are plowed of snow.
As you can see from the photo above, Bear Camp Road is damaged from the wet weather of late, ( the article says three times the normal rainfall in the last “six to eight weeks”). And, you can see from the photo that the road is blocked at the damaged area. The Forest Service strongly advises ones to not be driving on rain soaked roads this time of the year and this year in particular. The road is set to be plowed on Memorial Day and then it will be accessible between Grants Pass and Gold Beach (Bear Camp Road is located in southwest, Oregon.)
