Update (September 10, 2020): Due to the current state wildfire crisis, the closure of neighboring USFS lands, COVID-19 and its impacts on Parks personnel to support basic operations, the Sierra District will not be allowing walk-ins at any campgrounds for the remainder of the season and will be closing all remaining campgrounds on October 1. All existing camping reservations made prior to today (September 10) will be honored through October 1, but no new reservations are being accepted at this time. Day use areas and trails remain open. The previous district-wide ban on campfires and charcoal bbqs remains in place. The District will continue to monitor conditions and may impose further restrictions and closures as necessary.
