Winter Brings Changes To Recreation Sites Near Roosevelt
December 1, 2015
Several winter recreation sites near Roosevelt closed for the winter starting on Nov. 15. Davis Wash and Upper Burnt Corral will remain until March 1, 2016. Bermuda Flat also closed on Nov. 15, and it will re-open on February 16, 2016. This closure occurs annually, to protect the wintering goose population.
To compensate, the Bachelor Cove and Cholla Bay shoreline sites opened on Nov. 15. Both areas will remain open until February 15, 2016. There are no facilities, so all visitors are required to pack out everything they packed in. Cholla Bay requires either a Tonto Daily Pass or a Tonto Annual Pass. Fees are being enforced.
