RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Aspen Daily News:
The U.S. Forest Service has lifted a temporary ban on the use of tents and fabric trailers or campers in an area west of Aspen because problems with bears foraging for food there appear to have subsided.
Ranger Scott Snelson tells The Aspen Daily News (http://bit.ly/LpJwgp) that wildlife officials hadn't heard of any human-bear conflicts since the ban was enacted in the Difficult Campground area in May. Campers had reported several sightings of a black bear in the area.
Forest Service officials say campers should keep unattended food and coolers in a bear box or locked vehicle, and all garbage must be disposed of in trash containers. Food and cooking equipment should be stored in enclosed vehicles when not in use.
From The Associated Press:
A wildfire that broke out north of Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (June 23) triggered evacuations of campsites around an off-road recreation area.
The Ventura County Fire Department says the fire was reported shortly after noon near the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area. It has burned at least 400 acres.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Hungry Valley is located in the Tejon Pass along the Interstate 5 corridor.
