I ran across this on a recent back road ride about. The small pavilion had a stand holding a card which last reserved it in 2018. It looks like they locked the gate one day, walked away, and never came back. I guess this is the type of federal facility that we can no longer afford to maintain in the new America. I'm also guessing this isn't the only place this has happened.

I guess one could just bitch, rant, and speculate... Or pick up your smart phone and use those free minutes to make a call and ask those in charge.

Bottom line, the bridge(s) need to get replaced along with other improvements. This is a big project and will take ~ 1 1/2 years and it is funded. Bridges ain't cheap...and it looks like there are four of them on the loop ?

There are no bridges in this little campground. The first photo shows the creek crossing to enter the campground. It was intact. The loop road is(was) a gravel track through the woods. There are(were) a few primitive campsites. One is shown in one of the photos. Most of the photos were taken from what was the gravel road. It appears it has been abandoned for 4 years. Call the government and speak to those in charge. That's a good one!

Has little to do with "Can no longer afford..." Look at what they spend hundreds of billions on. .00001% of that would run this park. All about priorities.
