Seasonal campground closures under way in Arizona

Arizona Daily Sun
Seasonal campground and day-use site closures have started on the Coconino National Forest. Some close Tuesday; others have already closed for the season. Closed campgrounds and day-use area reopen every spring.

When closed, campgrounds and day-use sites will no longer have services such as water and toilets available, and in many cases, will be gated. Some campgrounds on the Coconino, however, will remain open year-round.

Alternately, a few campgrounds on the Coconino may be used during the closure season, free of charge, as long as the roads to those campgrounds remain open. When using these areas during the off-season, campers should use the designated sites and be prepared to camp without services such as water and toilets.

Campgrounds already closed are: Ashurst Lake, Forked Pine, Double Springs, Kinnikinick, Bootlegger, Pine Flat, Blue Ridge, Moqui Group, Rock Crossing.

Campgrounds closing Oct. 13: Canyon Vista, Dairy Springs, Lakeview, Pinegrove, Bonito, Little Elden springs, Lockett Meadow, O'Leary.

Day-use areas already closed: Lower Lake Mary Picnic and Lake Mary Narrows Launch.

Day-use areas closing Oct. 13: Upper Lake Mary, sites 1 and 2.
