Majority of public lands remain open during government shutdown

BLM facilities will be closed

During the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government, the majority of Bureau of Land Management public lands across the country will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. BLM roads, trails, campgrounds, boat ramps and recreation sites will remain accessible to visitors, but emergency and rescue services will be limited. All BLM facilities on public lands however will be closed.

Please note that because of the federal government shutdown, the BLM websites and social media are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions.
