Trapper’s Route Campground Development & 
Road Gravel ARRA Project

Map of Wyoming showing BLM Field Office names and boundaries and the general location of the Bridger Pass Road Gravel project.
NEED:  Parking lots, camping units and comfort stations were needed at three campgrounds adjacent to the North Platte River. Also, 1.15 miles of river access roads need to be graveled.

RECOVERY ACT FUNDING:  The project was awarded to Cook's Construction LLC for a total of $98,846.76 for the campground and $50,622 was spent on the road gravel.

BENEFITS:  The campgrounds (Golden Current, Chalk Bluffs, and Buffalo Berry) will provide additional recreational opportunities along the river corridor and will direct visitors to specific locations that can handle the increased use.

The newly surfaced roads will provide safe and reliable routes to popular fishing areas redirecting off-highway vehicle traffic away from closed roads. Uncontrolled OHV use in riparian areas was resulting in surface damage, impacting native plant communities and causing excessive erosion.
