BLM Announces Public Scoping for Sawtooth Camping Area Improvements


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces its intent to write an environmental assessment to consider improvements of the camping area in the Sawtooth Limited Use area of Stoddard Valley about eight miles south of Barstow. This proposed project would enhance the existing recreation opportunities for rock climbers and remote campers with the addition of 12 camp sites, one new restroom, a new kiosk, a picnic area and a host site.  Each camp site would have a shade ramada, picnic table, fire pit and grill, and a barbeque. 

Community members and interested parties are invited to participate in the environmental assessment by providing written comments by the close of business May 16, 2010.  Only written comments will be accepted regarding the proposed camping-area improvements.  Please submit your comments to the BLM Barstow Field Office, Attn: Sawtooth, John Kavanaugh, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow CA 92311, or by email to John_Kavanaugh@ca.blm.gov.  For further information about the project, please contact John Kavanaugh at (760) 252-6037.
