So what's the plan? I'm game for holding on to my reservations until closer to the date to see if they open 70 in time. Thoughts??
The recreation.gov link above has the most information on the closure of Highway 70 at this time. The Plumas National Forest webpage has no information about the campground closure. It appears that ongoing highway construction on State Route 70 is forcing the closure of the campground through June 30. The three other NFS campgrounds near Belden are also closed through June. Spanish Creek Campground, closer to 89, is showing availability but it is in the construction zone as I understand it today. While there is a chance that the road and Hallsted campground could reopen in time for our TrainSpotting campout, the way things have been going on 70 this year and last, I wouldn't bet on it. So, as the organizer, I say we pull it off the calendar for June. And that's exactly what I am going to do. If you want to keep your reservation, that's up to you. The email from recreation.gov spells out your options. Maybe we'll try later in the season.
