Forest Closure

The National Forest Service has closed the Coconino National Forest indefinitely due to persistent wildfires in the Northern Arizona wilderness and the ongoing threat of fire caused by dry conditions. This map shows the closed area, which includes land encompassed by the Red Rock Ranger District  surrounding Sedona. The public is prohibited from entering any part of Coconino National Forest at any time, and the Forest Service advises cancelling plans for visiting the Coconino National Forest for the next several weeks. There is currently no proposed reopening date. You will find more complete information here. The Grand Canyon remains open. Red Rock State Park remains open for the time being. State Parks, such as Red Rock State Park and Slide Rock State Park, are adapting to road closures and fire conditions and may or may not be open.  You can check state park status here. Our SedonaWebCam offers a real time view of the area. Despite the closure, there are still plenty of relaxing, adventurous and enjoyable things to do in and around Sedona.  Here are 77 ideas for you to enjoy a stay while avoiding closed USFS forest areas.
