U.S. Forest Service Suspends Some Services

Big Bear Valley, CA, October 4, 2013 – Due to the lapse in agency funding, the sale of all types of permits for the San Bernardino National Forest — including recreation, firewood, etc. — are suspended. Federally owned recreation sites and offices are closed.  These services will be available once federal funding is restored.

Law enforcement, fire suppression, and other essential services will continue without interruption.

The Big Bear Discovery Center is also closed due to the government shutdown.
