According to Lonnie Fehr, campground host at the Millard Canyon campground, the campground has been closed down until the political theater in Washington is over. Because the campground is closed, the Altadena Sheriff's Station will not open the gate at Chaney Trail that secures the campground.
Fehr said that US Forest Service law enforcement officers and firefighters are still on duty, but rangers and other staff have been furloughed. Fehr expressed concern that there may be health and safety problems created as there is no one to clean the areas and restrooms.
