Big Arm Draft EA

Development, Improvements, and Enhancements

Mon Dec 20 00:00:00 MST 2004

The project proposes site improvements at Big Arm State Park (Appendix A, p. 28). These include: the addition of two rental yurts, relocation of the existing park host trailer pads, construction of a new storage shed, relocation of the campground boat trailer parking area, construction of a handicapped-accessible campsite in Loop B with accessible vault toilet, the relocation of the day-use picnic and swim area from the middle of the campground to the day-use area at the south end of the park, and the addition of three tent sites to the area previously used for picnicking. Additionally, the Loop A campground road will be bladed and graveled to improve the surface and allow for access by vehicles with limited clearance (this particular item is a road maintenance issue and will not be further addressed in this document). The purpose of this project is to better utilize available open space, provide increased camping opportunities, improve the visual quality of the campground area, and reduce traffic conflicts and crowding between day- users and campers.
