Potable water will be available at the following campgrounds for Labor Day weekend: Willow Flat, Albert Moser Emigration Canyon and the Resource, Conservation and Development (RC&D) campground, now under supervision of the forest service.
“There are no restrictions yet on building fires or cutting firewood. But things could change in a hurry with dry and warm temperatures continuing.
“The watchword is always to be very, very cautious,” said Dennis Deuhren, ranger with the Montpelier Ranger District office.
Deuhren said spark arresters are necessary on ATVs, motorcycles and saws. He also cautioned people that all motorized vehicles are restricted to designated trails and roads.
“We are advising folks to use caution with all motorized vehicles.
“Maps can be obtained at all Forest Service offices and they are free. A few are also available at the True Value store in Preston. Maps can also be downloaded and printed by accessing a website: www.fs.fed. us/r4/car ibou––targhee/
Albert Moser has nine individual campsites. Willow Flat has 54 individual campsites and three group reservation areas. The Emigration Canyon Campground is between Preston and Bear Lake, off U.S. 36.
Upgrade work, under direction of the Forest Service, has been completed at the RC&D site. It is open for group reservations, officials said.
