FAIRPLAY, CO., February 12, 2015 – The U.S. Forest Service (USFS), Pike National Forest-South Park Ranger District has found it necessary to close all facilities at the Wilkerson Pass Visitor Center located between Lake George and Hartsel in Park County.
Repairs to the restrooms will be completed as soon as possible. In addition, the gate into the Visitor Center will remain closed. It is uncertain when the facilities will reopen.
According to South Park Ranger Josh Voorhis, “We understand that Wilkerson Pass Visitor Center is a popular tourist rest stop and closing it indefinitely has an impact on our public. We ask for your patience as we determine the extent of the necessary facility repairs.”
