BOULDER CITY – Following the enactment of the continuing resolution, Lake Mead National Recreation Area staff have resumed regular operations.

During the federal shutdown, the park remained as accessible as possible while still following applicable laws and procedures. Park roads, lookouts, trails and launch ramps at Lake Mead National Recreation Area remained accessible to visitors.

“We are grateful for our park partners who continued to provide first-rate services and for the support we received from our community during the shutdown,” Todd Suess, acting superintendent said.

The focus is now is to resume normal operations in a safe and orderly manner. As the park begins to transition, some services such as visitor centers and ranger programs may be temporarily unavailable.

“Lake Mead National Recreation Area employees are happy to be back at work, serving the American people and welcoming visitors to their national park,” Suess said.
