Joshua Tree is reopening, but some officials warn the national park suffered irreparable damage from vandalism during the government shutdown.

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. -- Starting Monday -- you're going to have to pay for your Joshua Tree campground again, but at least the bathrooms will be getting professionally cleaned.

The Joshua Tree National Park will be staffed -- but it may not look the same as it did before the government shutdown.

Tons of trash piled up and officials warn that some "irreparable" damage was done to the area when workers were furloughed for more than a month.
