SUMMER CLOSURES IN JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK START TOMORROW

During the summer when temperatures rise, the number of people camping in Joshua Tree National Park decreases. The park responds by closing some of the campgrounds. With the campground closures is managing editor Tami Roleff…
In order to reduce maintenance costs and allow vegetation a bit of a breather, Joshua Tree National Park will close some camping areas from June 6 until October 2. Closed campgrounds include Loop B of Cottonwood; Ryan; the family sites on the west loop of Indian Cove; and at Black Rock, sites 49 to 60, and 69 to 99. Jumbo Rocks and Hidden Valley campgrounds will be open all summer. White Tank, which is usually closed during the summer, will remain open to allow access to Arch Rock and extra campsites. Park rangers will monitor the number of campers to determine whether campgrounds should be re-opened during the summer months.
