Forest Service Lowers Medicine Bow Camping Limit

Rich Denison, Townsquare Media

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service has lowered the maximum daily limit for dispersed camping on the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeastern Wyoming from 21 days down to 16.

Dispersed camping means camping outside of developed campgrounds. The limit for staying at developed campgrounds remains unchanged at 14 days.

Under the new order, campers must move their camp at least three miles after they’ve been in one spot for 16 days. Campers cannot come back to the same site to camp for at least 30 days.

The Forest Service says the new rule is designed to discourage people from locking up spots on the forest for long periods.
