CO: BLM plans fees for new Prince Creek camping

ASPEN, Colo. — The Bureau of Land Management is asking what the public thinks of a plan to begin charging camping fees for most of the area campgrounds and raising fees for existing campgrounds.

The Colorado River Valley Office, located in Silt, manages six campgrounds and currently only charges for two. The $10 rate is too low to cover all the costs, according to the BLM.

One of the newer campgrounds the BLM hopes to charge for is located up Prince Creek south of Carbondale, which is already a popular spot for camping. The BLM completed two campgrounds this year along Prince Creek Road, each with five individual spots and one group spot.
