Sonora, CA– There’s good news for campers and outdoor recreation fans.
The Forest Service says the 28 campgrounds and picnic areas at the Stanislaus National Forest will be open for visitors this Memorial Day weekend.
Forest visitors are encouraged to contact local Ranger Stations for current information on changing conditions, campfire permits, and the best place to camp. Campfire permits are required for campfires and barbeques outside developed campgrounds.
Due to the heavy snow pack at higher elevations this year, a number of campgrounds will open later as the snow melts. All of the Forest’s 53 developed campgrounds, offering 1,466 campsites are scheduled to be open and available by mid-summer.
