BLACK HILLS FOREST CAMPGROUND IMPROVES ACCESSIBILITY

New facilities at Horsethief Campground are making it much easier for persons with disabilities to camp in the Black Hills National Forest.

Forest engineers replaced a dirt trail and a two-lane highway bridge at Horsethief Lake with an accessible pedestrian trail and bridge. The work blends in with the site, said Craig Kjar, Forest engineer. "Things like the roadbed between the day-use site and the campground were transformed into a trail. It really doesn’t look like a road anymore even though it was a two-lane highway."

The forest will complete additional accessibility upgrades this spring at Cook Lake Campground near Sundance, WY, and Roubaix Campground, south of Deadwood, SD, on Hwy 385. Full Story...
