The Bureau of Land Management announced in a press release issued Friday that the Roswell Field Office is increasing recreational access and services at some recreation sites.

Beginning June 19, BLM staff reopened vault toilet facilities at Rob Jagger’s Campground and Cave Campground as well as Haystack Mountain Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area and Mescalero Sands OHV Area.

These recreation areas have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic; only the vault toilet facilities were closed.

The BLM is working with public health authorities to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, and using a phased approach to increase access on a case-by-case basis, according to a press release.

A return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited.
