Two Medicine Bow National Forest campgrounds have been closed due to blowdown and are not scheduled to open until Memorial Day of 2000. The closed campgrounds are South Brush Creek (page 114) and Ryan Park (page 115). Both Campgrounds are listed out of the town of Saratoga, Wyoming.
Five Springs Falls campground (page 249) has been closed as of August 23, 1999 for renovations. When renovations are completed, sometime in the year 2000, the camp will offer 15 family sites, two group sites and a new host site. The renovation will include tent pads and parking spurs (where the terrain will allow), a pump and water well, foot bridge and new picnic tables, fire rings, grills and benches. Itâs a delightful area to camp, the renovations will be well worth the wait. This is a BLM camp listed out of the town of Lovell, Wyoming.
Fontenelle Creek Campground (page 154): Renovations to the water and electrical systems began in late August and are expected to be completed by mid-November, weather permitting. This BLM camp is listed out of the town of Green River, Wyoming.
