The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area’s campground will reopen Thursday, just in time for the busy camping season.

The campground, located about two miles east of the new visitor’s center on State Route 159 (West Charleston Boulevard), closed June 1 for improvements during the low-usage period.

The campground was open all last summer, but has closed in past years because of low visitation, or about 60 percent capacity, according to the Bureau of Land Management.

The improvements were funded by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act, which diverts money from sales of public lands toward construction projects. The campground improvements include shade structures for half of the individual campsites and all group campsites, as well as the installation of an improved toilet in the group site area.

The Red Rock Campground, which opened in February 1999, is the only developed campground within the conservation area. An estimated 500,000 people have visited the campground since its opening, according to BLM records.
