ATLANTA -The Southern Region of the USDA Forest Service is immediately waiving fees and making all campgrounds available for individuals displaced by the recent and forthcoming hurricanes, including Hurricane Irma.
    Many National Forests were impacted by the recent storms and as a result, some of the region's campgrounds are closed. National Forest staff are monitoring Hurricane Irma closely and may close additional campgrounds in the predicted path of the storm to ensure the safety of the public and employees.
    Please call ahead or check websites to determine what is open and available. Also, individuals requesting campsites need to check in with campground hosts at each site.
