BLM Moab Releases Draft Business Plan for BLM Campgrounds in Moab
Moab, Utah-The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Moab Field Office has released the Draft Business Plan for BLM Moab Campgrounds. This plan proposes to increase camping fees for overnight stays in the 27 campgrounds managed by the BLM in the Moab Field Office. The proposed fee change is to raise the current $8.00 camping fee to $10.00, the current $12.00 camping fee to $15.00 and to raise the group site fees by about 25 percent. The change is proposed to begin on March 1, 2013.
The 27 campgrounds managed by the Moab BLM offer overnight visitors an array of amenities including vault toilets, picnic tables, garbage service, designed campsites, graveled roads, shade shelters, campground host services, interpretive signing and tent pads. Selected campgrounds also have drinking water systems. The group sites associated with these campgrounds offer reservable sites for large groups. BLM provides campground patrol by both Law Enforcement and recreation personnel. The campgrounds are fully subscribed in the spring and fall seasons, and also receive heavy use in the summer. The Draft Business Plan also addresses additional campground infrastructure needs throughout the system. The Business Plan is available online at http://on.doi.gov/ITLwu4. The Utah Recreation Resource Advisory Council will be meeting on August 7, 2012 to consider the proposed increases.

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. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
