Forest Service Extends Closure of Most Developed Recreation Sites on Stanislaus National Forest Through May 31

Sonora, CA... The Stanislaus National Forest announced that most developed recreation sites will remain closed through May 31, 2020. The regional closure order 20-03 closed all designated recreation sites and campgrounds through May 15. Local forest order STF-16-2020-07 will be in effect beginning May 16, 2020 and is scheduled to expire May 31. A copy of the forest order will be posted on the Stanislaus National Forest web page as soon as it is available.

The Forest Service is working to reopen developed recreation sites for full access and ask that visitors be patient during this transition period. Be prepared for other options if your trail is closed, and whenever possible, recreate locally.

Visitors are asked to be aware that:

No trash removal is currently offered – please pack out all trash and waste
All toilet facilities are currently closed – please plan accordingly
Avoid high-risk activities – law enforcement and search and rescue operations may be limited
If an area is crowded, please search for a less occupied location
Employee and public safety continues to be our number one priority as we closely monitor the situation and make changes accordingly.

The order does not close trails, trailheads, and general forest areas, which remain open for public use. For up-to-date information on the Stanislaus National Forest, visit:

We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our national forests safe and healthy for everyone’s use.

          There's no explanation for a brainless comment about flushing 10 times. Ten lashes for you would make sense. Closing the forests is like closing the ocean to fishing and surfing, there is no logic involved. Closing Bear Valley Ski Area was another stupid idea from our fearless leaders. Keep the politicians at home and open everything else!

            The Big Weekend will probably have rain! When that happens I doubt anyone will come up here. Our air well eventually become all cleansed with not much traffic coming up here! So maybe all of us locals can "breathe" again! I myself, am going shopping during the week just in case! I'm still keeping a low profile and observing the SIP along with guidelines like wearing a mask, etc.
