Dispersed Camping Closed

Aaron K6ABJ

Took a drive up yesterday to the ElDorado National Forest expecting to do some dispersed camping only to discover that camping is limited to developed campgrounds only, and that many of those are also closed. Same for Tahoe National Forest and several others. Incidentally many backpacking and some Day Use areas are also closed. Backpack Camping within 500 feet of the Pacific Crest Trail is allowed.

Now that they have done it once, my guess is that National Forest closures will become a new norm. Time to start checking each time before packing and heading out.
