Recreation Facility Closures on the Eldorado National Forest

Developed campgrounds, cabin rentals, picnic areas, public restrooms, boat ramps, and other recreation facilities on the Eldorado National Forest are closed through April 30, 2020, as part of a statewide effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. A full list of current closures can be found below.

Notifications to those who reserved sites through recreation.gov will be made as soon as possible and refunds will be processed. While designated recreation sites will be closed, the general Forest area including the extensive trail and road system will remain open and available to the public with the exception of unpaved roads.

Please note that unrelated to COVID-19, the wet weather seasonal closure for unpaved roads has been extended through April 30. This closure may be lifted before April 30 if weather and soil conditions allow.

In is also important to be aware that trash removal will also be unavailable through April 30, 2020. As always, but with extra emphasis now, we encourage people to "pack it in, pack it out" and "leave no trace" when they visit their national forests.

As we work through an unpredictable and rapidly changing situation, health and safety is our number one priority. We are committed to continuing to support our communities and fulfill our mission as we all work together to minimize the impacts and spread of COVID-19.
