MONTICELLO — The Bureau of Land Management Monticello Field Office is now accepting public comment on a draft business plan proposing to increase camping fees at seven developed recreation sites in San Juan County.
Currently, overnight use fees are $6 per site at Hamburger Rock, $10 per site at Sand Island, and $25 plus $2 per person per night for the Sand Island group site. Use is currently free at Creek Pasture, Creek Pasture group site, Superbowl and Indian Creek Falls group site.
Fee rates at Hamburger Rock have remained the same since 2005, and rates at Sand Island have not changed since 2003. To help offset increased operating costs, the BLM proposes to raise overnight use fees as follows:
- $10 per site at Hamburger Rock and $15 per site at Sand Island
- New overnight use fees at Creek Pasture and Superbowl would be set at $10 per site
- New group site fees at Indian Creek Falls would be set at $25, plus $2 per person per night
- New group site fees at Creek Pasture would be set at $25, plus $3 per person per night
- The group site fee at Sand Island would be raised to $25, plus $4 per person per night
The proposed business plan is available for review here. Hard copies can be obtained at the BLM Monticello Field Office, 435 N. Main Street, Monticello.
