I just got back to work to find all the gates that can be shut have been shut. It sucks and is total BS. But there are only a few leo's around so take it for what it is worth last I checked it was our national forest
3 days ago I noticed some gates locked in the Big Bear area. I assumed it was because of the Washington debacle. Yesterday, I talked with the USFS cop in Big Bear who told me additional gates/areas would be closed. He also said he anticipated a full closure of the entire forest (no entry) in the coming days. I won't go into all the conversation here, but after talking to him I talked with senior SB USFS law enforcement officials and was told the forest was not closed, and a meeting was taking place this morning to address the issues.
In a nutshell, the gates closed 3 days ago are now open. ( I checked myself and they are open ) The forest is open except developed campsites, picnic areas, etc. including remote yellow post campsites. Some roads here have been closed because of fires and remain closed, but there is no "new" road closures.
I did check a few remote yellow post campsites, and they are posted as closed with a copy of some bs closure order from Washington. All of the developed campgrounds here ( Hanna flats, Serrano, etc) remain closed as well as day use areas.
