Potable water will be available at Willow Flat and Albert Moser campgrounds for the Fourth of July holiday, said Forest Service officials.
Potable water will also be usable for Emigration Canyon and the Resource, Conservation and Development (RC&D) campgrounds, now under supervision of the Forest Service.
Grasses and shrubs are still green in the mountains. But, absolutely no fireworks of any kind are allowed in the forest or on any federal ground, said Dennis Deuhren, ranger with the Montpelier Ranger District office.
“Officers will be patrolling for violations. There are no restrictions yet on building fires or cutting firewood. The watchword is always to be very, very cautious,” 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.
“Maps can be obtained at all Forest Service offices and they are free. Maps can also be downloaded and printed by accessing the website: www.fs.fed.us/r4/caribou–targhee/
“We are advising folks to use caution with all motorized vehicles. Albert Moser and the Willow Flat campgrounds in Cub River Canyon have already been busy this summer,” officials continued, “and should remain so throughout fall.”
Albert Moser has nine individual campsites. Willow Flat has 54 individual campsites and three group reservation areas. The Emigration Canyon Campground between Preston and Bear Lake, off U.S. 36, is open.
