Lodgepole Creek Road (2013)
Lodgepole Rd.- Myers Creek Ranger Station Stillwater County

Lodgepole Creek Road Opened

In 2009 the Lodgepole creek road leading to thousands of acres on the West side of the Absaroka range was opened by Stillwater county . However, and sadly , the road was washed out in the 2011 flood. After a year hiatus during which funds were generated from FEMA,and other sources, work was completed and the road reopened in time for the 2013 hunting season. Stillwater County has completed their flood restoration work to the forest boundary and removed the barricade. An FWP official and a PLWA member inspected the road and confirmed that the road is open. The last two water crossings do not have culverts and are steep. A high clearance 4WD is recommended. We owe a big thank you to FWP for their financial support and persistence . We also thank Stillwater County for their hard work and commitment in getting the project accomplished.
