UPDATE, APRIL 22, 2015: Water safety issues have been resolved at the rest area and drinking water and restroom facilities are now fully operational. Thank you for your patience over the last 48 hours.
Due to the condo fire at Government Camp, OTE’s Government Camp Rest Area is unable to provide drinking water for rest area users. Restroom facilities may also be affected, so please let our friendly staff know if you run into any issues with the plumbing. The area surrounding the fire and the rest area may be quite smoky. We will update you as to the status of the rest area when we learn new details. Motorists should also expect delays along Hwy 26 through the area today and this evening as ODOT construction crews will flag traffic through blast zones.
