Changes are being proposed for Indian Henry Campground and we need your help!  The campground is in a known laminated root rot pocket and it covers 80% of the campground. Many hazard trees have been removed and a large part of the campground was closed due to potentially hazardous conditions due to falling dead or diseased trees.  The Forest Service has developed a proposal to undertake a vegetation management and infrastructure improvement project in the campground to renovate the campground and address of the hazard tree problem.  We would love to hear what you think about the proposal. A letter with background and details about the proposal is linked below as well as a proposed treatment map and a short summary.  Thank you for your interest in managing our public lands.
