Bighorn campgrounds opening for Memorial Day

SHERIDAN – The Bighorn National Forest is busy gearing up for the 2013 camping season, with its unofficial opening Memorial Day weekend.

The Prune Creek, Shell Creek, Leigh Creek Middle Fork, South Fork, and Tie Hack campgrounds and the Ranger Creek Recreation Area in Shell Canyon will open Friday for camping enthusiasts.
Campers are advised to bring their own supply of drinking water until about mid-June, as water may not be available until successful water tests have been completed.

Camping fees are reduced until full services are offered.
The remaining campgrounds will open with full services in June as the snow melts and roads dry out.

People are urged to be careful while recreating in the early summer.

“We want everyone to be safe when enjoying the national forest, so know the weather forecast, road conditions, and what to expect before heading out,” said recreation program manager Dave McKee.
For up-to-date information on campground openings, amenities, and road conditions, contact the local ranger district office in Buffalo, Lovell, or Sheridan. Information is also available on the web at www.fs.usda.gov/bighorn/.
