STANLEY — The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is pleased to announce that construction of a new campground loop at the Stanley Lake Campground will be complete on or around Monday, August 6. Construction activities will then move to the Stanley lake Inlet Campground to begin construction on a new boat ramp and parking area.
As a result of the boat ramp construction, certain campsites at the Stanley Lake Inlet Campground will be permanently closed. Campground visitors at affected sites within the Inlet Campground, within their 10-day stay limit, will be given first priority to move to the new campground, to complete their stay.
Access to the existing boat ramp at Stanley Lake inlet will remain until the new boat ramp construction is complete. Removal and naturalization of the abandoned boat ramp, road segments, and campsites should be completed this fall, completing the Stanley Lake reconstruction project.
