Death Valley National Park announced Wednesday some closed areas of the park will reopen in the coming days and once again be accessible to visitors.
Some visitor services, including campgrounds and the Stovepipe Wells Contact Station, will also reopen using revenue generated by recreation fees.
The park had to restrict access to these areas last week as a result of the ongoing partial government shutdown and the subsequent pileup of trash and human waste at some facilities.
The Park Service took the unusual step of allowing funds collected from entrance fees to pay to keep parks open.
In a statement, Death Valley officials said because of size of the park and the unknown nature of all the issues it may take a week or longer to fully restore all areas.
