Road Repair Project May Cause Delays
Campground Site Reductions also in place
From September 25, 2007 to October 15, 2007 the park will resurface roads in the maintenance, residence, and visitor center areas, as well as portions of the 9-mile long Canyon Loop Drive (with access to Pueblo Bonito, other Chacoan sites, and backcountry trail heads).
During the project, visitors may experience: short delays getting to the visitor center, limited parking at the visitor center parking area, short traffic delays along the Canyon Loop Drive, temporary closure of Fajada Butte View, and some early morning (6:30 a.m.) noise in the Gallo Campground associated with employee parking and project staging.
Due to lack of parking at the visitor center, school buses, charter buses, and large RVs are encouraged to reschedule their visits until the project is completed.
Additionally, we’d like to remind visitors that camping at Chaco Culture National Historical Park will be severely limited until further notice. The park is working on emergency repairs at the Gallo Campground. Until the new repairs are completed, the park has suspended all group camping and reduced the number of regular camp sites from 49 to 35.
Groups visiting Chaco will need to make alternative arrangements for camping, and regular campers are encouraged to have other camping options in the event the campground is full. Please call the park (505) 786-7014 ext. 221 for alternative camping ideas. The park regrets this inconvenience.
