Pine Beetle Spraying near Red Feathers and Surrounding Campgrounds

camp-out-colorado-bellaire-lake-path-to-lakeSome of the campgrounds in north central Colorado are going to be closed for the first few weeks of camping season. Due to the late season snow the mountains received this year, the US Forest Service was unable to spray the campgrounds for pine beetles before the camping season begins. The pine beetle spraying in these very popular campgrounds is now scheduled to start in late May and go through mid June. While these popular campgrounds are being sprayed, no camping or day use will be permitted.
