The 20-site campground in Devils Postpile National Monument in eastern California sidles up to the Middle Fork of the San Joaquin River. Set in a forest, the campground suffered damage from the hard winter.
The monument has limited day-use facilities that do not meet the demands of the 150,000 annual visitors. The existing day-use area is congested and cramped, due to the campground and parking occupying much of the usable space.
This continued closure will provide greater access and a higher quality recreation experience for day-use visitors along the riverfront for fishing and picnicking, according to park staff.
There are five U.S. Forest Service campgrounds in the immediate area that can accommodate several hundred campers a night.
