About 30 trees have been identified within the campground area as hazards to public safety. A few camping spots in Thibodeau Campground will be closed to provide for the safety of visitors while workers cut and move these hazardous trees. Work may take up to three weeks to complete. During this time, heavy equipment will be used in the campground, and visitors are advised to use caution when recreating in this area.
The northern portion of Thibodeau Campground will remain open. Other sites within the Blackfoot River Recreation Corridor such as Whitaker Bridge, Thibodeau Rapids day-use site and Corrick’s River Bend Campground will not be affected by these activities.
