SANTA FE – The Santa Fe National Forest is preparing for one of the busiest recreation weekends of the year.
All recreation facilities on the forest will be open with one exception. The E.V. Long Campground on the Pecos/Las Vegas Ranger District is closed for restoration due to flood damage in 2013.
To check the availability of campgrounds that require reservations, visit the Reserve America website. The first-come, first-served sites will likely fill up fast. With the increase in visitors over the holiday weekend, please remember that recreation and camping etiquette is essential to having a safe, fun and enjoyable stay on the forest.
All Santa Fe National Forest offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of Labor Day. Forest offices will resume regular business hours Tuesday, Sept. 8.
For additional information, contact a local Ranger District or the Forest Headquarters at 505.438.5300.
