North Platte access areas closed


Due to flood waters along the North Platte River, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) has closed several Public Access Areas (PAAs).

Treasure Island, Foote, Pick Bridge, Sanger and Fort Steele/Rochelle are all currently closed. WGFD has also closed the following two PAAs on the Laramie River: the Jelm PAA near Woods Landing and the Monolith PAA four miles west of the town of Laramie.

While the roads entering these areas may appear dry and safe to use, the rising flood waters can quickly change and create flooded or washed out roads. The public is asked not to attempt using the roads on these PAAs.

All these PAAs will remain closed until flood waters recede and the campgrounds have become dry and safe for public use.

The WGFD has also closed some roads on the Wick Wildlife Habitat Management Area (WHMA) along Wagonhound Creek due to flood damage. The public is urged to use caution and delay any activities on the Wick WHMA until flooding has ended.
