Forest Closed:(

So does this mean that you can't camp and scout this weekend?? Son and I were going to scout out the Bethal unit this weekend camping along the Bethal ridge rd. Going to make some phone calls tomorrow.

As I read the closure, associated roads, trails and facilities in the unit are close if they are DNR, community forest or state land.  I would be interested if you find out different.

DNR land is state land. If its state land managed by DNR, its closed. If its national forest, its managed by a different agency and youd have to check with that agency. Weve got lot of state land here, but weve also got lots of federal land, which at this point is not closed under a blanket order. There are national forests that are closed, so check before you go.

Bethel is split between DNR and NFS. However NFS put out an announcement that they aren't closed yet, however strongly request you don't camp or other recreational activities currently

I do believe that was said at meeting.
That's what I hate about these closures the most is the misinformation that is passed along.
DNR does own Alot of boat launches,camp grounds,and the whole lake in areas of Washington.
Then you have Forrest service and BLM that are open.
Then you hear FS recommend no recreation,but go to there website says nothing like that.
It's just hard to get accurate info in these times,yet everybody has a smart phone.

bethel ridge road from white pass all the way over the hill to the rattlesnake drainage is all national forest and is open for recreation.  Have at it, just be smart. No fires, don't park in the grass, etc. Also bring bug spray because the mosquitoes are thick right now.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

Thanks Karl. We are heading up towards Rattlesnake Springs this weekend and was not sure if they were closing National Forests as well.

State run facilities I assume?
