SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (AP) -- National forest managers are opening recreation areas that have been closed since a massive wildfire scorched areas in and around Yosemite National Park last summer.
Stanislaus National Forest officials say they are opening several seasonal roads, campgrounds and day use areas, including Rainbow Pool Day Use Area and Rim of the World Vista.
Those areas have been closed since the Rim Fire began Aug. 17 and became the third-largest wildfire in California history.
The Stockton Record (http://bit.ly/QxzBJe ) reports forest crews have been working for months to fill stump holes, replace signs, barriers and picnic tables, and mark recreation area boundaries.
Starting Friday, camping will be allowed at campgrounds including Diamond O, Lost Claim, Lumsden, Lumsden Bridge and Sweetwater.
