Moraine Park Campground will be closed to all users while the campground is being rehabilitated beginning in late May 2023 through early summer 2024.
Additionally, this project will relocate electric powerlines in the campground underground to reduce system damage caused by snow, wind, falling tree branches, electrical hazards and wildfire. It will add electrical hook-ups to approximately 60 RV campsites.
Where is Moraine Park Campground?
Moraine Park Campground is accessed via Bear Lake Road and is the largest of the park’s five front country campgrounds. Moraine Park Campground is open year-round and has 244 campsites that can accommodate a variety of camping equipment types, including up to 40-foot RVs, sprinter vans, and tents. Over 30,000 campers stay at MPCG annually.
How will this Project be Funded?
The Moraine Park Campground and Utility Rehabilitation Project will be funded by the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA). GAOA’s National Parks and Public Lands Legacy Restoration Fund, supported by revenue from energy development, provides up to $1.9 billion per year for five years to make significant enhancements in national parks and other public lands to ensure their preservation and provide opportunities for recreation, education and enjoyment for current and future visitors.
Why is this Project Important?
The water and utility infrastructure at MPCG has not been updated since the campground was first built in the 1960s. Increased visitor usage, evolving trends in recreation, the need to improve access for all campers, and deferred maintenance for critical water and utility systems have all created a need to rehabilitate the Moraine Park Campground and nearby areas.
