Red Cliffs Campground Closes For Repairs

ST. GEORGE, Utah – The Red Cliffs Campground will close temporarily Jan. 9 while the potable water system in the Bureau of Land Management’s Red Cliffs Recreation Area is upgraded. 

The project will replace waterlines and add waterlines for additional hydrants.

Day-use visitors may park at the White Reef trailhead and walk in to use the trails in the campground area, but they must bring their own water. Vaulted toilets will remain open at the campground and trailhead.

The campground will reopen, in the early spring, but water will not be available in the campground until the entire water system is replaced, possibly by March.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The agency’s mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. Diverse activities authorized on these lands generated $111 billion in economic output across the country in fiscal year 2019—more than any other agency in the Department of the Interior. These activities supported more than 498,000 jobs.
