Ruby Creek Campground To Close For 48 Hours

The Bureau of Land Management’s Ruby Creek Campground will be closed for 48 hours during the week of June 6 for maintenance.

Though the exact dates have not been determined, the closure will be posted 48 hours in advance. Visitors are asked to please follow the signs and stay out of the campground for their safety. While the campground will be closed, the Ruby Creek Recreation Area will remain open to visitors.

For those seeking an alternate camping site during that period, the BLM’s Palisades Campground has seven camping units for use at $8 per night (there are no fees for boat launch or day use).

The annual routine maintenance includes removing gophers from the area and repairing damage caused by the rodents around the 22 camping units at the site.

The Ruby Creek Campground and Recreation Area, located about 25 miles south of Ennis, is a popular destination on the Upper Madison River for fishing, boating and camping.

For more information, call Matt Blocker at the BLM’s Ennis office at (406) 682-4082.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
