2021 Pulver Group Site and Designated Dispersed Campsites

USDA Forest Service

The Pike National Forest, South Park Ranger District, is providing an opportunity to comment on a proposal to charge a fee for newly developed recreation sites at Pulver Pavilion and dispersed campsites along Forest Road 861.  Increased use of this area has led to the need to develop a group campsite and designate campsites within the FR 861 corridor to provide long term sustainability and safety for the enjoyment of the public. 

Development of Pulver Group site includes signage, 6 individual ADA tables and fire rings, group fire ring, 6 tables under the picnic shelter, 2 vault restrooms, safety, fencing and gate.  Dispersed campsites along FR 861 have a fire ring and picnic table. 

Additionally, a concessionaire will operate and collect fees at these sites, provide sanitation, make improvements, and provide security.

An opportunity to comment provides those parties interested in or affected by this action an opportunity to make their concerns known.  Comments should be submitted within 30 calendar days following publication of this notice in the Fairplay Flume, the newspaper of record.
