BLM Opening Campground at Indian Creek Reservoir on April 27


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District-Sierra Front Field Office, announces the April 27, 2012, opening at 8:00 a.m. of the BLM campground adjacent to Indian Creek Reservoir in Alpine County, California. Fees for camping will be the same that they have been since 2005 and are similar with other comparable facilities in the area.

 

Indian Creek Campground is one of the best federal campground values in the Sierra Nevada with hot showers, flush toilets, an RV sanitary dump station, paved roads and parking sites, and bear-proof storage lockers available at each site. A BLM maintenance technician and camp hosts are on-site. Other facilities at Indian Creek Reservoir include a boat launching area, day use picnic area, three loop interpretive trail system and over eight miles of hiking trails.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
