Tangle Lakes Campground to be renovated this summer

This summer, the BLM is renovating the popular BLM Tangle Lakes Campground at milepost 21.5 on the Denali Highway. The campground will remain open throughout construction, but some parts of the campground will close while undergoing the renovations. Campsites are first-come, first-served.
"Right now, campers can park anywhere because campsites are undesignated," Marcia Butorac, BLM Recreation and Facilities Coordinator, explains. "The renovations will designate campsites improve roadbeds, define foot trails, and provide a new day-use area within the campground. They will also help to restore damaged areas and protect cultural resources."
Once construction is complete, the renovated Tangle Lakes Campground will become a fee site. Campground fees will be compatible with other campground facilities within the Glennallen Field Office management area. BLM will use 100 percent of the collected fees for enhancements including maintenance and repairs, accessibility, interpretation, and other improvement.
