POCATELLO — The Bureau of Land Management’s Pocatello Field Office (PFO) will renovate Goodenough Creek Campground between Sept. 3 and Dec. 2 to enhance recreational experiences for the public. The campground will be unavailable for use during this time period to ensure public safety.
“The purpose of improving the campground is to add more sites to accommodate larger recreational vehicles, install a toilet in the middle of the campground in proximity to the tent sites and improve the day use parking area to allow for more vehicles,” Assistant Field Manager Blaine Newman said. “The Pocatello Field Office is excited about making improvements to the campground to benefit the public recreating there.”
The PFO will be completing maintenance projects within the campground, including rebuilding the main access road and recreational vehicle turnaround, and expanding the day use parking area. Water diversion controls, additional campsites and a new toilet will also be installed.
While the campground is being renovated, the public can camp at other nearby campgrounds, including the PFO-managed Hawkins Reservoir Campground and non-BLM campgrounds. The trails adjacent to Goodenough Creek Campground that lead onto the Caribou-Targhee National Forest can be accessed by other trailheads located in the forest.
