Vandalism at Doc’s Beach Recreation Area
On December 4, 2020, it was reported to the Bureau of Land Management Vernal Field Office, that a large, partially-dismantled chicken coop was illegally dumped at the popular recreation area, Doc’s Beach.
Located approximately seven miles from Vernal, Utah, Doc’s Beach offers a unique recreation experience just outside of town. Known for its spectacular landscape and easy access; families frequent the area to ride horses, hike, or enjoy a ride on their favorite machine.
Jessica Farmer, a Vernal Field Office Outdoor Recreation Specialist said, “It’s really a shame, there were nails, glass and broken boards all over the place. Someone could have really been hurt by someone else’s careless actions.”
Members of the public contact the Vernal Field Office or their local office if they have information about the vandalism. Everyone should always practice Leave No Trace (LNT) principles while visiting public lands. Help the Bureau of Land Management and our partners keep remarkable recreation sites in good condition for you, your friends, and all visitors to enjoy by recreating responsibly on public lands. For more information about Leave No Trace or how to get involved please visit the BLM's outdoor ethics website.
