The Forest Service is seeking public comments on a proposed project to make improvements in the Ranger Creek Campground and the Adelaide Trailhead.

The project proposal includes closing and relocating campsites and replacing toilets in the Ranger Creek Campground, and constructing additional parking for people using the Adelaide Trail and the Bench Trail. Replacing outdated facilities at the trailhead and in the campground’s group site are included in the proposal.

Comments on the proposed project can be hand delivered or sent by regular mail to Dave Hogen at the Medicine Wheel Ranger District, 95 Highway 16/20, Greybull, Wyoming, 82426. The office is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, except federal holidays. Comments can be submitted via email to comments-bighorn@fs.fed.us or faxed to 307.548.5316. The closing date for comments is February 27, 2016.

For more information about this project, contact Bob Cochran at rcochran@fs.fed.us or 307.548.5308. A description and map of the project area are available online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/bighorn/landmanagement/projects.

  1. First of course, would like to know estimated cost. Second concern is USFS’ apparent inability to care for the infrastructure they already have in place; third , questions about status of the vacant but costly Burgess Junction visitors’ center, fourth are concerns about fire prevention, intrusion of junipers, sagebrush and timber since there has been no logging or attention to invasive species. I hope the public will comment to the appropriate agency, as USFS is theoretically about more than recreational use.
