Forest Closed In Areas Surrounding Wildfire


Bear Canyon and Woods Canyon Lake continue to be closed until further notice. All recreational activity in and around those locations is prohibited.

The Houston Mesa campground is currently in use by fire officials and is therefore closed to public use.

All forest lands are closed to public access inside a border, bound on the east by the Tonto National Forest boundary, the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest boundary and Forest Road 235 near Willow Springs Lake, on the north by the Mogollon Rim and Forest Road 300, on the west by Forest Road 289 near Tonto Creek and on the south by Highway 260.

Highway 260 remains open to traffic. However, officials asked that motorists not stop along the highway and to travel the highway only when necessary.
