Denver (AP) Forest service officials say the opening of some campgrounds will be delayed this summer and some will be closed altogether because of fears that trees killed by bark beetles may fall on campers.
White River National Forest officials made the announcement yesterday, saying they are trying to cut down and remove trees to reduce the danger in campgrounds. Six campgrounds at the White River National Forest will open late this summer and three won't open at all.
Bark beetles have infested about 1.5 million acres of Lodgepole pines in northern Colorado and about 334,000 acres of aspens are dying or in decline.
