The temporary closure has been enacted for the past 18 years and has helped a bald eagle pair to successfully nest and raise young, contributing to the sustained recovery for this species. Bald eagles are particularly sensitive to disturbances during their nesting phase.
The closure area includes the north loops of the Wyandotte Campground (accessed by Forest Service roads #22N57YA & B), on the southern section of the reservoir. The closure is in effect until August 31, 2017.
