The developed campground at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area will reopen today after having been closed since June for improvements.
The reopening comes with cooler temperatures for the fall as rock climbers from around the world make the popular sandstone cliffs their destination, said Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Kirsten Cannon.
Improvements, which were funded through the sale of public lands in Southern Nevada, include shade structures for half the individual campsites and all of the group camping areas.
"The improvements were aimed at improving visitor satisfaction by providing more comfortable campsite areas with shade and an additional bathroom," Cannon said in a news release .
The campground is located in the national conservation area, two miles east of the visitors center on state Route 159.
The fee for an individual campsite is $15 per night. Group campsites are $40 per night.
Reservations are required and can be made by calling 702-515-5371 or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
