Because of budget uncertainties, the BLM is announcing that the Hyatt Lake campground and boat docks will be delayed until at least May 15th. Traditionally, the facility opens in mid-April at the beginning of fishing season.
Officials at the bureau of land management say there is not enough money available to hire the seasonal personnel needed to prepare the campground, plow the roads, assemble the floating boat dock, and perform other required tasks before opening for recreational use.
The Bureau of Land Management will have to decide of limited staffing can support the full operation during heavy use in the summer. Work on trail maintenance, trash collection, bathroom cleanings, and upkeep of the campground and equestrian facilities.
