As of 9:00 am, September 7, 2012, Butt Lake Road (County Road 305) will re-open to the Butt Lake dam according to Plumas County and Plumas National Forest officials.

PG&E facilities including the Ray Adams Boat Launch and Ponderosa Campground at the lake will re-open while the Cool Springs Campground will remain closed for the season. The fire that burned adjacent to the lake was low intensity. Most of the canopy remains green and wildlife is moving through the area.

The Yellow Creek (PG&E) Campground, along the Humbug/Humboldt Road (Road 307), is also closed for the season. This road remains closed.

The Gansner Campground (Forest Service) on Caribou Road off Highway 70, is also re-opening at 9:00 am. Caribou road remains closed beyond the campground.
