The Red Canyon Visitor Center and Campground will close for the 2012 Season on September 30th
(Panguitch, UT) – The Red Canyon Visitor Center and Campground on the Powell Ranger District, Dixie National Forest will close for the 2012 season, on September 30. Due to reconstruction of the Visitor Center facilities, the closing is earlier than usual to accommodate for concerns of the visiting public’s safety during the construction. Improvements include new interpretive education panels, a new accessible trail, and reconstruction of the picnic area, restrooms and an upgrade to the septic system. The Visitor Center remodel project partners include: Garfield County, Bryce Canyon Natural History Association, Scenic Byway 12 Committee, National Scenic Byways Program, Bryce Canyon National Park and the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. We look forward to the completion of the renovations and the improved services we offer to the visitor’s safety and experience on the Dixie National Forest. The Red Canyon Visitor Center will open for the 2013 season on Easter weekend, March 29, 2013 as we kick off the celebration of the tenth year anniversary of the popular Forest Service Visitor Center.
Additionally, the Red Canyon Campground will close for the season on September 30. For more information please contact the Powell Ranger District at 225 East Center Street, Panguitch, Utah or give us a call at 435-676-9300.
