The closure order for developed recreation sites in the Coronado National Forest, has been extended to August 31, 2020. The White Rock Campground on the Nogales Ranger district was removed from the closure order and is scheduled to re-open on August 1, 2020.
“The health and safety of our communities and employees remains our number one priority," said Forest Supervisor, Kerwin Dewberry. "While visitor centers and group areas will remain closed, we recommend people continue to recreate responsibly. We ask that visitors please continue to follow local, state and federal guidelines on social distancing."
We ask the public to engage in activities that support social distancing and small groups, and that are aligned with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Arizona Department of Health direction, such as hiking, biking and dispersed camping. Visitors can mitigate resource impacts while recreation sites are closed by bringing home their trash (pack it in, pack it out) and practicing Leave No Trace Principles.
The Coronado National Forest continues to conduct business and accomplish its mission virtually in alignment with all federal, state and local public safety guidance.
