Day activities such as boat launch sites, picnic sites, trails and viewing sites will remain open; however, restroom availability will be restricted in many of the areas.
Off-site daily activity areas controlled by the USACE include McGuire Creek, Rock Creek, Nelson Creek, Devils Creek, Crooked Creek, Fourchette Bay, Bone Trail and the Pines. According to the press release, USACE is banning camping in these areas for now and until further notice.
People who paid to reserve a spot at the Downstream Campground will be notified of the shutdown through email and will get a refund.
