Update - Memorial Weekend
El Dorado National Forest

Forest Service

**12 new day use sites open - see list below**

The Eldorado National Forest will continue to phase in opening of facilities and services as federal, state and county policies and facility preparations allow. Please see below for the current updates:

Developed campgrounds throughout the forest will remain closed until they can be safely opened for the season.
The exact date for when campgrounds will open is not known at this time. Forest personnel are assessing the situation, keeping in close contact with partners and staying abreast of changing conditions and new information. The situation is being closely monitored and weekly assessments of anticipated campground opening dates are being conducted to determine if reservation cancellations will be necessary. If the campground is not able to be opened, customers will be notified via and will receive a refund.

We understand that this may cause uncertainty with individuals who have made reservations, particularly in the month of June. We thank you for your patience to this point and ask for your continued patience during this transition period.

Please be aware that many of our campgrounds do not typically open until late May or June, even without the challenges associated with COVID-19, due to winter snow and the associated preparation of the sites for the season.
