Visitor Information

The Forest Supervisor of the Coronado National Forest has requested that we no longer have the parking area at Carr House open with our Host, Mike Foster, available to the public. The closure will be in effect starting Saturday, September 26th. This decision is being made to ensure the continued health and safety of friends groups, such as FOHM, and the public visiting the national forest. At this time, the Carr House Visitor Information center and parking area will remain closed through September 30, 2020, and we anticipate this closure will be extended into October.
Good news! The gate to the Carr House and grounds will reopen on Saturday, September 5th at 9:00. Our Host, Mike Foster, will be available at the picnic tables to provide information about the area and answer questions. He will be there on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00- 4:00 and on all Federal holidays including Labor Day. The gate will be locked at 4:00 each day. Guests will be asked to follow CDC recommended precautions regarding COVID 19, including wearing masks if social distancing of 6 feet from other people is not possible and not congregating in groups of more than 10.

Unfortunately, the Carr House and the bathrooms will remain closed at this time.
