Recreationists may still park further up the road and the restroom is open for public use. The lake will continue to be open for fishing except for the area along the dam. Work at the dam includes stabilizing the embankment, leveling the top of the dam and addressing seepage concerns. Recreationists are advised to drive carefully and avoid fishing near the construction zone.
In addition to the work on Love Lake Dam, logging operations are scheduled to soon begin at the Last Chance Timber Sale located towards the end of FSR 523. It will be best to access Middle Creek Trail (Forest Trail 809) from the end of FSR 524 while the timber sale is being harvested. Drivers should stay alert for heavy equipment and logging trucks using FSR 523.
