RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Santee Patch:
The Santee Lakes took the top prize as the 2012 Readers’ Choice for Best Local Stay-cation in Santee.
The vote was a landslide. The lakes took 77 percent, with Carlton Oaks getting 13 percent and Barona Resort and Casino taking eight percent.
The Santee Lakes make just about the perfect stay-cation get away, with cabins (some even float!), lots of camping and RV spots, fishing, trails and all sorts of fun for the whole family.
From a news release:
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Moab Field Office has released the Draft Business Plan for BLM Moab Campgrounds. This plan proposes to increase camping fees for overnight stays in the 27 campgrounds managed by the BLM in the Moab Field Office. The proposed fee change is to raise the current $8 camping fee to $10, the current $12 camping fee to $15 and to raise the group site fees by about 25 percent. The change is proposed to begin on March 1, 2013.
The 27 campgrounds managed by the Moab BLM offer overnight visitors an array of amenities including vault toilets, picnic tables, garbage service, designed campsites, graveled roads, shade shelters, campground host services, interpretive signing and tent pads. Selected campgrounds also have drinking water systems. The group sites associated with these campgrounds offer reservable sites for large groups. BLM provides campground patrol by both Law Enforcement and recreation personnel. The campgrounds are fully subscribed in the spring and fall seasons, and also receive heavy use in the summer.
The Draft Business Plan also addresses additional campground infrastructure needs throughout the system. The Business Plan is available online at http://on.doi.gov/ITLwu4. The Utah Recreation Resource Advisory Council will be meeting on Aug. 7, 2012 to consider the proposed increases.
