Tonto Forest still under bear restrictions

August 09, 2012

Tonto National Forest officials announced modifications of a temporary closure order which was enacted last month in response to three bear attacks in the Payson Ranger District.

Forest spokeswoman Rahcel Hohl advises you can check the Tonto Forest website or call the Ranger Office at 928-474-7900 if you have questions about where you can camp overnight as some areas are still under the evening closure orders.
