Forest Service Considers Closing Some Campgrounds

· Apr. 5, 2010, 3:59 pm

Some National Forest Service campgrounds in Colorado and across the country may be closed, while others could be spruced up. In the state's eight national forests, officials are taking inventory of about 1,400 recreational sites – including campgrounds, picnic areas and trailheads– and recommending which ones to close or keep open. Ryan Warner talks to Greg Griffith, deputy forester for the Rocky Mountain Region of the U.S. Forest Service, and Louise Barker, who's volunteering to keep one Colorado campground open.
