Opening schedule for spring 2011 Forest Service recreation areas

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. –The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit will begin the annual process of opening recreational facilities around the Lake Tahoe Basin.  Campgrounds, day-use areas and forest roads traditionally open around mid-May, weather permitting.  The Taylor Creek Visitor Center and the Tallac Historic Site normally open around Memorial Day weekend.

Before facilities can be opened, the Forest Service must finish the task of hiring crews to staff and manage the sites, clean up from winter, remove safety hazards and wait for the danger of a freeze to pass before turning on water systems.

As a reminder, until recreation facilities officially open, there is no parking, trash removal, or restroom facilities available.  Please park your vehicle off the roadway and do not block access gates.  Pack out all trash and where pets are allowed, please clean up after your animal.

For a complete list of projected opening dates, visit our 2011 Campground and Forest Road web page at http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/ltbmu/RecAreaOpenings or call the Forest Supervisor’s office at (530) 543-2694.
