Forest Order No. 02-20-10

Other recreation opportunities, such as hunting, dispersed camping and hiking on the Cleveland National Forest remain available to the public. To protect public health and safety all visitors to the forest are encouraged to:

·          Avoid visiting the forest if you are sick and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

·          Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit to the forest.

·          If an area is crowded, move to a less occupied location. Also consider avoiding the forest during high-use periods.

·          Take your trash with you when you leave. Trash overflowing the receptacles becomes  potential sources for the spread of COVID-19.

·          Please make arrangements to use the restroom before or after your visit to the forest. Unmanaged waste creates a health hazard for other visitors and employees.


The USDA Forest Service may need to temporarily suspend access to recreation areas that attract large crowds and cannot meet social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Visitors to national forests are urged to take the precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) so that these areas can remain open for everyone’s enjoyment.
