Covid-19 Updates

Many campgrounds and picnic areas are now open; however some remain closed.  You can find out the status of each site by clicking on recreation in the left hand column, then navigating to the type of site (campgrounds, picnic areas, etc.) and finally by clicking on the individual site's name.

Whenever possible, please recreate locally. Visitors should practice self-sufficiency when visiting national forests and come prepared with all the essentials needed for your trip, including food, emergency supplies, and the ability to pack-out trash. Remember to recreate responsibly by keeping the following in mind:

  • Please avoid visiting if you are sick and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • If an area is crowded, move to a less occupied location.
  • Consider avoiding the forest during high-use periods such as holiday weekends.
  • Maintain at least six feet distancing from others.
  • Do not gather in groups other than those in your household.
  • Pack out your trash and leave with everything you bring in and use.
  • High risk activities such as rock climbing or backcountry activities that increase your chance of injury or distress should be avoided. Law enforcement and/or search and rescue operations may be limited at this time.
