Draft Unit Management Plans (UMPs) for three NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) campgrounds in the Adirondacks are now available for public review and comment. The Draft Plans for Limekiln Lake, Eighth Lake and Lake Durant campgrounds identify facilities and infrastructure to be upgraded or replaced during the next five years to enhance recreational opportunities.
DEC is accepting public comments on the Draft Plans until April 8, 2016. A public availability session will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 29, at the Raquette Lake Union Free School, 115 State Route 28, Raquette Lake, NY. The availability session will provide an opportunity for people to learn more about the proposed management actions in the Draft Plans and to comment on the proposals. The meeting facilities are wheelchair accessible. Please call 518-897-1248 at least two weeks in advance of the meeting if you have specific accommodation requests.
“These UMPs outline a suite of important infrastructure improvements to enhance recreational access and tourism at these signature DEC campground facilities,” DEC Acting Commissioner Seggos said. “Once completed, these upgrades will create more attractive destinations for campers and visitors to enjoy the world-class recreational opportunities in the Adirondack region.”
