There was some activity there on April 19 when I rode by but I didn't stop to see. I know some years they close seasonally and are only open in the summer months. I don't know if this helps you but there is reliable fuel just north in Narrows.
Frenchglen is the only SE stop I don't have the # for. Sorry.
The Hotel there may or may not have info. (541) 493-2825

for fuel in that area.

Hello Don,
There is gas at the store. They are open 9.30-5-6ish.
Hope that helps!
John
We're headed that way later this month.

refused service

On 5/19 I drove pass the station going south, it was after 5pm and was surprised to see the owner filling a KLR from NEW HAMPSHIRE. So I turned around and went back. The owner let me talk to the rider for about twenty seconds then yelled at me for speeding through a school zone/town. Told me that he's refusing me service. I told him I'm buying my fuel at field station on my way to Alvord hot springs. Soooo if you really need gas ....... Drive very slowly into town!!! So I've been thrown out of French Glenn!!!! I really have been thrown out of better places!
