The area beyond the first water crossing at Lower Gallinas and the area across Upper Gallinas Campground is temporarily closed to overnight use, campfires and motorized vehicles.  Day use and foot traffic are welcome. The upper portions of this watershed were severely burned during the Silver Fire in 2013.  Although this area is healing, flooding could occur.

There is a corral near the campground for stock. The campground is situated fairly close to the highway. Visitors can expect to hear traffic.
