You mean Simpson? As far as I know they don't hand out keys, but many employees have keys. If a gate is locked there should be no one driving. If the land is not posted, it is USUALLY open to hunting. It may be closed right now due to fire danger.
I suggest contacting the land owner about access related questions.
WELL I KNOW THERE IS A SIMPSON . BUT THERE IS A SMALL LOGGING COMPANY THAT OWNS LAND AROUND HAGG LAKE AND GRANDE RHONDE. IS THAT SIMPSON OR STIMPSON? I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW BEFORE I GO LOOKING FOR A CONTACT NUMBER.
