US Forest Service Land Closing For Winter

October 17, 2021

The USDA Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit has begun the annual process of closing recreational facilities around Lake Tahoe for the winter season. Seasonal closures apply to many National Forest recreation sites including beaches, campgrounds, picnic areas and forest roads.

Campgrounds, picnic areas, and beach facilities on National Forest lands managed by Tahoe Recreation, a division of California Land Management, will close at the end of the day on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021.

Taylor Creek Visitor Center outdoor interpretive services will also end on Oct. 17, and the Tallac Historic Site closed in mid-Sep. Please be aware that bears may be highly active in the Taylor Creek area during this time. Always keep your distance from bears, leave food and other scented items at home and stay on the trails.

Forest roads generally begin closing in mid-November for public safety and resource protection. For specific forest road closing dates, consult the Motor Vehicle Use Maps at https://go.usa.gov/xM6gJ

Although facilities on National Forest lands close for the winter season, the grounds and lake access remain open year-round. During winter month closures, services such as water, restrooms and trash collection are not available. When accessing these areas in the winter, be sure to pack out your garbage and everything you bring in and use, park legally and do not block closed gates.
