This location is closed (Affected reservations have been cancelled and refunds have been issued.)  Local managers are committed to the health and safety of recreational visitors and our staff.  We are following the guidelines from our department and the CDC regarding   COVID-19, closely monitoring the situation and responding to current conditions.

Five developed units are available for overnight camping on a first come, first-served basis. Each campsite is equipped with a table and a fire ring. Two bear-proof trash bins are available for use at the trailhead. If these bins are full, please pack out your trash. The Feather Falls area is bear habitat, and bears are attracted to trash and food. Please help keep yourself and your fellow campers safe, and store all food and dispose of all waste properly.

Closures of developed recreation facilities are being put in place until at least April 30th in an attempt to avoid groups of people and promote social distancing of staying more than six feet apart.

While designated recreation sites will be closed, the general Forest area including the extensive trail system will remain open and available to the public. Hiking and walking outdoors are widely considered beneficial to maintaining one’s health. It is the intent of USDA Forest Service to maintain trail access to the extent practicable.
