We have found a new site near
Portland! Bull Run Education Center/Roslyn Park is a
beautiful wooded site near Sandy Oregon, 22 miles from
Portland. This site used to be Roslyn Lake, but the lake has
been drained to allow salmon to migrate up the Bull Run
river. It has flush toilets and potable water. Use your
favorite mapping program to 41515 SE Thomas Road, Sandy Oregon
Site hours: 3:00pm on Friday the
8th of August to 6:00pm on Sunday the 10th.
Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
