Responsible recreation includes:
- Recreating locally; traveling long distances to recreate should be avoided.
- Cutting Christmas trees (with a permit) with members of your household only.
- Maintaining at least six feet of distance from others while visiting the Tahoe National Forest.
- Researching winter road conditions before you leave.
- Not gathering in groups; please following the latest health guidance from officials.
- Communicating with others as you pass on trails or at recreation sites; please avoid crowded recreation sites, parking areas, or trails.
- Packing out all your trash and leaving with everything you brought.
- Remaining at home if you or anyone in your household is feeling sick.
Responsible recreation will help ensure that access to recreational facilities and opportunities will continue across the Tahoe National Forest.
All Tahoe National Forest campgrounds are closed at this time. In addition, our fuelwood permit process has changed through December 31, 2020. Please follow this link to learn more about the updated permit process: http://go.usa.gov/xAceJ
Tahoe National Forest offices are also closed to in-person visits to protect the health and safety of employees and members of the public. Many services traditionally offered in our public offices are available online including online Christmas Tree Permits. To access these virtual services, please visit our website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/tahoe/.
We will continue to update our website with current information as conditions change. Happy Holidays!
