Fremont Lake Campground on the BTNF re-opening anticipated this summer

(Jackson, Wyo.) - It is anticipated that the Fremont Lake Campground located on the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Pinedale will open this summer after work on the campground is completed. Beginning in May 2016, the contractor will finalize specific work tasks in the campground. “Pending completion of the work, I anticipate having the campground open this summer,” said Pinedale District Ranger Rob Hoelscher. “The final opening date will be released as soon as the rework has been completed and accepted by the Forest Service,” he said. Fremont Campground is the largest campground on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and is considered one of the premier campgrounds on the Forest. Campground improvements at this site were necessary to address public health and safety issues, improve accessibility and meet visitor expectations for quality facilities at Fremont Lake. “This campground is extremely important to the public, especially to the local community,” Hoelscher said. “The Forest remains committed to completing this effort and opening this campground as soon as contractually possible.” Reservations cannot be accepted for the Fremont Campground until the work is completed. Other available campsites on the Pinedale Ranger District include the Half Moon Lake and Narrows Campgrounds (which have reservation sites), as well as Trails End Campground, Boulder Lake Campground, New Fork Lake Campground, and Willow Lake Campground. *Feature Photo: h/t US Forest Service / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
