A. Lee Graham Reporter   The Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is closing all campgrounds and day-use parks due to the federal government shutdown.   “The Fort Worth District regrets the impacts these closures might have on the numerous patrons who recreate at our facilities, and we are working to keep the public fully informed about the availability and status of those facilities,” said Col. Charles Klinge, commander, Fort Worth District, commenting in a news release.   Beginning Tuesday Oct. 1 and continuing through the end of the shutdown, the Corps said it will neither accept reservations nor allow new visitors into its recreation facilities. Campers already on site before the shutdown took effect are required to vacate campgrounds no later than 8 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 2.   Customers may cancel their reservations for a full refund. Those needing to vacate campsites early can expect partial refunds for unused portion of their reservations. As an alternative, they have the option to leave reservations open for possible use after the shutdown ends.   Customers may request partial refunds at 1-888-448-1474 (TDD 1-877-833-6777). If customers take no action, Reservations will automatically cancel after customers’ departure dates if they take no action.   lgraham@bizpress.net
