Officials of the Prescott National Forest (Arizona) will be closing Yavapai Campground on November 15, a report said. The campground is located in the Granite Basin Recreation Area on the forest’s Bradshaw Ranger District.

The campground will be closed for winter because of the shortage of forest personnel and hosts for the campground. It will reopen on April 1 next year.

Forest visitors are advised that Alto Pit and White Spar campgrounds will be open throughout the winter. For those who don’t require amenities such as water or restrooms, dispersed camping is available.

Officials from the Prescott National Forest have also put a gate near Forest Road 74 and Forest Trail 384 south of Lower Wolf Creek Campground for the winter. The gate will prevent motorized vehicles from accessing Forest Road 74 between Trail 384 and Lower Wolf Creek Campground, which will also be closed for winter. Visitors can drive on the loop through Senator Highway and County Road 101 on Forest Roads 79, 79B, and the southern part of Forest Road 74.

This gate will be locked each year from November 1 to May 1.

Forest officials advise everyone to exercise caution when driving along roads in the forest during the winter. Many forest roads are frozen during winter, which can pose additional dangers since they remain covered in shade most of the time.

Go to this Prescott NF Recreation and Camping page for more details, or call the Bradshaw & Chino Valley Ranger Districts at 928-443-8000.
