Arizona Coconino National Forest Public Camp Ground sign



Part of a National Forest ranger’s duties has always been ensuring that visitors enjoy the forest responsibly. Back in the 1910s or 1920s, this sign was posted at one of the campgrounds in the Coconino National Forest, near Flagstaff, Arizona, to emphasize this goal. “This public campground is supervised by the U.S. Forest Service,” it read. “If it has been of service to you, show your appreciation by guarding against mutilation of trees or improvements. Put out your fire and leave your camp clean.” Like most National Forest signage in the West during the era, it was made of steel, with the design painted on by hand in porcelain enamel.

Our National Forest Public Camp Ground sign is made to be just like the original. We’ve brought this classic sign back to life using historic photographs. It is not known whether any originals of this design have survived to the present day. If they have, it’s certain that they would fetch hundreds or even thousands of dollars on the free market. If you’re looking for an excellent display piece at a more reasonable price, look no further than our faithful replica.

Our National Forest Public Camp Ground sign is made of heavy 14-gauge steel. Its weatherproof, non-reflective finish is a near-exact match of the original’s porcelain. Install it indoors or outdoors; either way, it will serve you well for years to come. We’ve also included mounting holes to make installation easier. Pick from the following sizes:

  • 15 in. × 10 in.
  • 21 in. × 14 in.
  • 30 in. × 20 in.
  • 36 in. × 24 in.
  • 42 in. × 28 in.
  • 45 in. × 30 in.
