Little Sahara Recreation Area Temporarily Closed Until May 13 The BLM Fillmore Field Office plans to reopen the Little Sahara Recreation Area (LSRA) on Wednesday, May 13 following updates to COVID-19-related restrictions that the State of Utah and the Central Utah Public Health Department recently implemented. The BLM will implement social distancing and dispersed camping restrictions when we rescind the emergency closure order. Until the BLM rescinds the order, the recreation area remains closed. The BLM closed the Little Sahara Recreation Area (LSRA) on March 26, after working closely with state and local governments to address public health concerns related to COVID-19. This closure was consistent with the State Public Health Order issued by the Utah Department of Health. The BLM’s number one priority is to protect the health and safety of staff and visitors to our recreation areas and facilities. The BLM is collaborating with state and local governments to plan and implement the reopening of Little Sahara Recreation Area. Recommended restrictions will be posted to this webpage in the coming days. On busy weekends in the spring, LSRA may receive up to 30,000 visitors, large camping groups, heavy use of public facilities, and significant employee-public contact. During the weekend of March 20-22, the LSRA received approximately 15,000 visitors. View the The BLM will extend Little Sahara Recreation Area season passes by two months. For example, a season pass that originally expired February 2021 will now expire April 2021.
