The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest will be delaying the opening of recreation trails and some campgrounds due to persisting snow pack and high water.

"We recognize that visitors will be disappointed, we are monitoring conditions and working to get trails and the remaining campgrounds open as soon as possible," said Tim Vetter, Recreation, Wilderness and Lands program manager for the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Access to these trails and campgrounds for cleanup and preparations has been delayed due to lingering snow pack and high water in areas. Visit www.fs.usda.gov/cnnf to check the latest status of campgrounds and recreational trails.
