N.C.: National Forest closed due to Florence

WASHINGTON — “The U.S. Forest Service, Forest Supervisor, having closely tracked the forecast models of Hurricane Florence, has decided to close down all campgrounds and recreation sites, day use or overnight, in the Nantahala and the Pisgah National Forests by Thursday September 13 at noon,” according to WHKP.

This will include the temporary suspension of creating reservations on www.recreation.gov. Cancelled reservations, for this timeframe, will be refunded by the reservation service.

The Forest Service will close all seasonal gates, to ensure no one has the opportunity to get trapped behind gates.
