There’s no reason to turn back, but finding an open restroom may be an issue, he said.

“The forest is open — you can still come and you can still enjoy it,” Freligh said. “There just won’t be any ranger stations and bathrooms available.”

While campgrounds in the national forest may be closed, there are still plenty of state parks and private campgrounds that remain open, according to Freligh and Gregg Pittman of the New Hampshire Campgrounds Association.

Appalachian Mount Club huts and facilities are among those that remain open, including the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, Highland Center and Cardigan Lodge, Pittman said.

For the state’s regular foliage reports, go to visitnh.gov. For a list of open state parks, visit nhstateparks.org. A list of privately owned campgrounds can be found at nhlovescampers.com.
