A message from Georgia-Pacific:
Georgia-Pacific (GP) is pleased to, once again, offer its Olalla reservoir near Toledo, Oregon, to the public as a community resource. While the reservoir’s primary purpose is to provide water for operations at GP’s containerboard mill in Toledo, many residents, local and otherwise, enjoy it for boating, fishing, hiking and other recreationally healthy activities. GP closed the reservoir to the public last October due to dangerously low water levels. But today, normal water levels have returned and the lake will be re-opened for public use at sunrise February 1st.
However, here are some things that are not allowed on the lake or around its shoreline. Specifically prohibited are hunting, discharging firearms, overnight camping, tobacco and alcohol, open fires and gas-powered boat motors. Dogs must be kept on leashes in the parking and swimming areas and all waste must be placed in trash cans.
No lifeguard is present and the reservoir is to be used at one’s own risk during daylight hours. The lake is closed at night.
Again, now that water levels have returned to normal, the reservoir will reopen to the public at sunrise February 1. Georgia-Pacific reserves the right to close the reservoir to the public for safety or other reasons. We encourage visitors to comply with our rule so that this privately owned site may serve the public for years to come.
