Half dozen state parks to remain closed due to fire danger

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Cimarron Canyon State Park near Eagle Nest, Manzano Mountains State Park, the Las Tusas Recreation Area northwest of Grants, Fenton Lake in the Jemez, Hyde Memorial Park northeast of Santa Fe, and Morphy Lake State Park near Mora will remain closed due to extreme fire danger.

Officials of the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, State Parks Division, made the announcement Wednesday morning.

The closures are expected to remain in effect until enough moisture returns to the areas to lower the fire threat.

Visitors who have reserved campsites at any of these parks during the closure should contact Reserve America at 1-877-664-7787 for refunds/transfers of pre-paid reservable campsites due to the park closure.

Twenty-nine state parks remain open and reservations are available at many of them. In addition, park visitors are reminded that all parks are under fire restrictions. For more information, visit
