Construction continues on Fremont Lake Campground and Upper Boat Launch
No projected reopening date
by Bridger-Teton National Forest
May 4, 2015
The Fremont Lake Campground and Upper Boat Site, located on the Bridger-Teton National Forest five miles north of Pinedale, Wyoming, remain closed and the Forest does not have an estimated opening date. The Contracting Office continues to work with the contractor to finish obligations under the campground construction contract.
Fremont Campground is the largest campground on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and is considered one of the premier campgrounds on the Forest. Campground improvements at this site were necessary to address public health and safety issues, improve accessibility and meet visitor expectations for quality facilities at Fremont Lake.
"We recognize this campground is extremely important to the public, especially to the local community," said Recreation Specialist Cindy Stein. "We’ve heard from many people how important this campground is for families, businesses, and campers locally and abroad. For this reason, we remain committed to completing this effort and opening this campground as soon as contractually possible," she said.
Reservations cannot be accepted for the Fremont Campground until the contract is completed. Other available campsites on the Pinedale Ranger District include the Half Moon Lake and Narrows Campgrounds (which have reservation sites), as well as Trails End Campground, Boulder Lake Campground, New Fork Lake Campground, and Willow Lake Campground.
Upper Fremont Boat Site:
While not part of the Fremont Campground construction project, the Upper Fremont Boat Site is located within the Fremont Campground construction area. The Forest Service and Wyoming Game and Fish Department are working in partnership to bring this launch site to acceptable standard, including replacement of the dilapidated boat dock. The Lower Fremont Boat Site, located on the southwest shore of Fremont Lake, remains open to boaters throughout the 2015 boating season.
Public notice will be provided when the boat site and campground opening date is finalized. The Forest appreciates everyone’s patience and the Bridger-Teton remains committed to providing high quality recreation facilities across the Forest.
