CEDAR CITY — It may soon cost more to camp at three Bureau of Land Management sites in Beaver and Iron counties, as federal land managers say the areas continue to experience high demand.

The bureau’s Cedar City office unveiled a plan this week that would increase the overnight camping fee from $5 to $12 at the Rocky Peak Campground within the Three Peaks Recreation Area and the Pyramid Ridge Campground, both located within a 25-mile radius of Cedar City, and the Hanging Rock Recreation Site, located about 15 miles southwest of Beaver.

The future Coal Creek, Bear Rock and South Creek campgrounds in the area would also open at $12, under the proposal.

Developed group site fees would increase from $20 to $30 at Pyramid Ridge, as well as the three future campgrounds. It would also cost $40 for sites that feature a pavilion among the four sites. If approved, there would also be a $2 per day, $25 yearly pass and $220 group use reservation per day fee for the planned Three Peaks Paint Ball Complex.
