Projects resulting in a closure or major impact

Day Use Area reconstruction

Day use area reconstruction is expected to wrap up this summer.

Little Prairie, McNeely’s and Knight’s Lake day use areas are open to the public. Coppermine and Lost Horse are open but may require short-term closures as minor finishing upgrades take place.

Crandell Mountain Campground

Stage one of Crandell Mountain Campground reconstruction was completed in 2021. This included completing underground utilities and infrastructure, the water tank and water treatment building, wildlife corridor reclamation and rough grading the Crandell Lake Trail parking lot and trailhead.

Plans for stage two are still being determined and will be shared in due course. No completion date has been set.

Red Rock Canyon Day Use Area

Footpath paving and bridge rehabilitation continues at Red Rock Canyon day use area. The construction will result in periodic closures of the bridges and canyon trails.

This work is expected to be completed in 2023. For your safety and the safety of work crews, please obey all signage and area closures.
