BLM Rawlins Temporarily Closes Dugway Recreation Site


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office is immediately closing the Dugway Recreation Site on the North Platte River as a safety precaution due to flooding from snow melt and rain.

The recreation site will not reopen until the water recedes and allows the BLM to inspect the access road and site for any damage and make necessary repairs.

The Dugway Recreation Site is located about seven miles north of Sinclair, Wyo. It is a popular spot for floating and fishing and offers five free campsites and a boat launch. Alternative campsites in the surrounding area can be found at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Rawlins/rec/camping.html.



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.
