TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tonto National Forest recreation sites and administrative offices are expected to reopen Friday at 8 a.m. due to the resumption of federal government funding.

Forest officials said marinas at Roosevelt, Apache, Canyon, Bartlett and Saguaro lakes are open.

"We are working quickly to recall staff and coordinate efforts to reopen all forest facilities, boat launches and developed recreational sites which were open previous to the shutdown," Forest supervisor Neil Bosworth stated in a news release. 

Trails and all commercial arenas stayed open during the shutdown. 

"We appreciate the public's ongoing patience and support as we work to return all operations to normal," Bosworth said. "While most recreation areas will be re-opened today, we anticipate resuming all forest operations no later than tomorrow morning."
