Kaibab Lake Campground To Reopen Following
WILLIAMS, Ariz. – Kaibab Lake Campground
on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest will soon
reopen following a $1.6 million renovation project. The lower portion
of the campground will open Friday (Aug. 12), and camping will be available
on a first-come, first-served basis. The entire campground will reopen
Monday (Aug. 15).
“We are excited about the campground
renovation and the improvements and we believe that the public will be
pleased with the results,” said Deirdre McLaughlin, recreation forester.
“We’ve added a lot of day-use parking for people throughout the
campground, so that folks will have more access to the lake for picnics
Kaibab Lake Campground, which is located
about 4 miles northeast of Williams off of state Route 64, is one of the
forest’s most popular campgrounds. It has been closed to overnight
camping because of the major improvements being undertaken by the Kaibab
National Forest and local contractor L P’s Excavating of Williams.
Improvements to the campground include
new pavement, new parking spurs, new campsite amenities such as fire rings
and picnic tables, more day-use parking for improved fishing access, improved
ramadas, additional small-group capacity, a re-designed overnight group
camping area, and a new camping loop with an additional 11 campsites. The
entrance road to the campground has also been improved.
“The reconstruction project has added
new amenities and enhanced existing ones,” McLaughlin said. “We
believe the renovation will lead to improved visitor experiences for many
years to come.”
