Applegate Field Office

The Applegate Field Office manages nearly 1.75 million acres of public land which straddles the border of northeast California and northwest Nevada.  From beautiful Klamath and Shasta National Forests on the west, to the towering Warner Mountains, and east into the high desert valleys and mountains of northwestern Nevada.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains the number one priority of the Bureau of Land Management. In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local public health officials, the BLM will temporarily close select developed recreation sites in California, to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

The closure is effective immediately and will remain in effect until such time as conditions allow for safe use of the recreation areas. While certain developed recreation sites and field office lobbies are closed, dispersed camping and trails remain open and available to the public.

For a list of closures please visit our COVID-19 Update page.
