  • Davidson River Campground will temporarily close starting January 15

    Davidson River Campground will be closed to the public from Jan. 15 to Feb. 15. Small sections of the following trails will be closed:

    • Exercise Trail #344
    • North Slope Trail #359

    During this time, select pine trees will be removed from the campground for public safety. These trees have been diagnosed with a root disease which makes them more susceptible to blowing over. Over the past several years many hazard trees have been removed from the campground when they posed a threat to campers.

    During the closure period, the area will not be safe for onlookers. Workers will be using large equipment that can inadvertently create projectiles that can fly hundreds of feet. Even when workers are not present, there may be hanging branches that can fall at any moment.
