Headwaters of the Metolius -
Where the Metolius River bubbles out of a hole in the ground and grows to a river.
As the Metolius Basin and Suttle Lake areas increase in use and popularity, we remind you to please make your impact "light on the land". Please respect the few but important rules
regarding fires, camping, litter, fishing and trail use. The Metolius Basin has been designated
as the Metolius Conservation Area where forest management emphasizes the retention of the old
growth ponderosa pine ecosystem and where the use of motorized vehicles are restricted to designated
roads. It is our hope that not only will you stay & play, but also help us to preserve and protect.
