“With the recent rains, we feel like we can safely allow people back into the Oak Grove campground. If we get another hot and dry weather pattern back in here that dries out the vegetation again, we may have to consider closing it again,” said Ken Henson the Fire Management Officer on the Pine Valley Ranger District.
“We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding with respect to the campground closure. I know it is a favorite place for some people. Public safety is our highest priority, and I am happy to announce that we feel the threat from fire danger is low enough right now that we can re-open the Oak Grove again,” said Joe Rechsteiner, Pine Valley District Ranger.
