Round 2 of Government shutdown closures on Coconino National Forest

NEW ROUND OF FOREST CLOSURES ON THE COCONINO

Just when you thought it couldn't get more crazy, the government shutdown is now forcing closure of campgrounds and other sites on Coconino National Forest.  Some of these sites would have normally closed for the year at the end of October anyway.  But others, even those run by private companies, are being forced to close.  Generally, undeveloped trailheads, hiking trails and forest access via number roads remain open. A full list is available here:

Coyote Blog (.com) a guy from Scottsdale has been blogging about this since he owns over 100 private camp sites on federal land. If you are interested.
