Officials at the US Forest Service announced they would begin reopening some developed recreation sites in the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Medicine-Bow Routt National Forests after May 31.

The USFS order rescinds the developed recreation site closure and fire restrictions on May 20, but gives local managers control over reopening and restrictions.

The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests will begin opening developed recreation sites after May 31, but fire restrictions remain in place. 

The Medicine-Bow Routt National Forests also plan to open developed recreation sites after May 31, as conditions allow. Fire restrictions are not in effect.
