ALPINE, Tex. — The management of Big Bend National Park is initiating temporary closures of the following park areas: Cottonwood Campground car and group campsites; all but the first loop of the Rio Grande Village Campground; all Rio Grande Village group campsites; and the Old Maverick Road backcountry car camping sites, according to Alpine Avalanche.
The closures will begin June 1 and will be progressively lifted beginning October 1 with all facilities to be re-opened by November 1, Alpine Avalanche reported.
The closures are due to short-term staffing shortages and are for visitor and employee safety, as well as park resource protection, Alpine Avalanche explained.
