Press Release

Access to camping at Silver Creek West restricted due to footbridge construction

Construction will begin soon on a new footbridge crossing at Silver Creek West that will provide public access to Fish and Game property.

The construction contractor will begin to stage equipment to install the footings for the new Silver Creek West footbridge which will require the closure of the western portion of the Silver Creek West campground to the public. It is anticipated that the closure will remain in effect for several weeks. The eastern portion of the campground will remain open to day-use and over-night camping.
