The water system at Tortilla campground is once again operational, resulting in the Forest Service’s decision to reopen the campground on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018.
The Forest Service closed Tortilla campground earlier in December, citing challenges in maintaining the water treatment facilities for the campground and the need to preserve the public’s safety.
Tortilla campground is located near Canyon Lake in the Mesa Ranger District.
