Yavapai Campground in Prescott will be closed for the winter season

Campers will have limited access to what's considered a very remote campground in the Prescott National Forest this year.

The Yavapai Campground will remain closed for this upcoming winter season.

The campground is managed throughout the year and is considered to be the most remote. 

Officials said they made the decision because of staffing shortages and lack of snow removal over the winter.

The campground will be closed from November to April.

Those heading up north will still be able to access the Alto Pit and White Spar campgrounds.
