Bear Sightings in Area, May 7, 2019

There have been bear sightings in the area, bear scat in the park, and most recently bear activity at the lower garbage dumpsters.  This is the annual reminder that we are in a wilderness area, and with the substantial changes to habitat resulting from the December windstorm we may have more visits from wildlife.  Please report all large animal wildlife encounters or sightings to staff or conservation as soon as they occur.

Logging around park perimeter

The parcel of land immediately to the east of Spider Lake Springs is private property. Our property ends at the back boundary of sites in B, C, D, and G sections that lie on the eastern side of the park. The windstorm in December 2018 caused extensive damage to properties in this area, most of it being fallen, uprooted, compromised and damaged trees. Due to the number of such trees on the neighboring property, the landowner is clearing a buffer between the trees on his property and the sites along the east side of our property. The view from sites in E, B, C, D and G sections is affected by this work. As it is private property and the compromised trees do pose a liability risk, there is little we can do about it.
