Yes, until 8/2.

Due to heavy monsoon storms on July 27 and 28 and associated debris flow, numerous areas of Forest Road 459 (North Lake Road) have been made impassable to vehicle traffic. Crews are working to clear North Lake Road and access is restricted to the intersection of Bartlett Dam Road (Forest Road 19) until the debris can be cleared and the road is made safe for vehicle travel. Motorists will not be able to use North Lake Road while road crews are clearing and repairing the road. In some areas the debris is up to 4 feet deep and local crews worked into the evening hours last night to assist visitors who had become stuck at multiple recreation sites. Crews will continue clearing the road and recreation sites through the weekend and anticipate being able to reopen the road by Tuesday, August 2, however, additional rain is forecasted for the next several days which has the potential to cause further debris flows and may delay the reopening.
Road work will impact all recreation sites along North Lake Road and the following sites will be inaccessible until the work is completed:
- Rattlesnake Picnic Area
- SB Cove Picnic areas and Shoreline
- Yellow Cliffs Boat Launch and Picnic Sites areas
- Bartlett Flats Shoreline
The Jojoba boat launch and nearby shoreline, Bartlett Marina, and the Riverside campground are unaffected by the road closure and remain available for visitors at this time.
