  • Tree Removal in Campgrounds Around Sugar Pine Reservoir

    Starting June 21st, removal of dead trees will be taking palce in Sugar Pine Reservoir campgrounds to enhance forest health and public safety. Due to the extended drought, trees have had a reduced ability fend off bark beetle attacks. Work will take place in only one campground at a time so that visitors will still have access to camping sites at the reservoir. Giant Gap campground will be first, closing portions of the campground temporarily to visitors. Work will take place during the week, leaving weekends free of noise exposure. 

    “The safety of visitors is our top priority,” said Mary Grim, District Ranger of the American River Ranger District. “We appreciate the public’s patience during this temporary disruption so we can make these improvements to these popular sites.”

    The dates for the tree removal in Shirttail Creek and Forbes Creek campgrounds will be shared in the coming days.
