Green River Lakes campground Loop B is expected to open for camping on Friday, July 2nd for the 4th of July holiday weekend, according to a press release from the Pinedale Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Loop A will remain a Closed Area until approximately July 27 for commercial timber removal of trees that toppled over during a wind storm on Memorial Day weekend. The tree removal operation is also removing trees which were infested and killed by Mountain Pine Beetles in the past year. No firewood cutting or removal is allowed in the Closed Area. The entire campground was closed on Memorial Day weekend after a high wind incident, combined with saturated ground conditions, toppled dozens of trees in the Green River Lakes campground causing a serious danger to the public. The trees that fell, and others that have been weakened by the beetle infestation, are now being removed.

All other facilities at Green River Lakes developed area remain open while the tree removal is underway in the campground area. Only the campground is currently closed for public safety. The road accessing the boat launch area, the trailhead parking area, corrals, restrooms and trailhead are open.

No reservations are being accepted for the closed area through the online campground reservation system and anyone who made reservations earlier when the closure was put into effect can get a refund. Contact the Pinedale Ranger District office, located next to Falers General Store in Pinedale, 307-367-4326, for further information.
