Willow Bay, Other Campgrounds to Close

Concession sites in the Allegheny National Forest – including Willow Bay and all other campgrounds – have been given 48 hours to close because of the federal government shutdown.

The forest supervisor contacted Allegheny Site Management today about closing. Law enforcement and fire personnel are exempt from a shut down, but all so-called non-essential services in the ANF are closed down, or will be soon.

Government employees are still manning the Kinzua Dam because it’s an essential operation of the US Army Corps of Engineers, but the dam will not be open to tourists during the government shut down.

Huh. Last time I went to a recreational park I wasn't in need of the government.
