We spent the last week in Williams AZ (west of Flagstaff) camping and RZR riding. We stopped by White Horse Campground located within Kaibab National Forest. The campground was closed to camping and vehicles but was not closed to pedestrian traffic and fishing.

The bathrooms were closed but there was toilet paper evidence on the ground behind the bathrooms showing that people were relieving themselves anyway. Is this really what the federal government wants its citizens resorting to?

I'm sure they don't, but everything has its consequences.

In March I was evicted from a CA state park campground where there were very few campers. We were all self-contained and far apart. But they left the bathrooms open for day use. Very strange.

Closing campgrounds where the spaces are far apart forces people into RV parks where spaces are close and utilities shared. It makes little sense.

Kind of like latex gloves thrown on the ground in parking lots and filling the waterways.

Time to close it totally if people can't conduct themselves properly.
As 2oldman stated everything has consequences.

Those bathrooms are locked up now.

I agree. The few ruin it for the many.

We went to our State park and they had Porta-potties.

They were nice and clean, except some inconsiderate MORON stuffed several blue grocery store bags full of trash into the toilet!
