Forest Service seeks comment on proposal to reissue Camp Richardson Corral permit
The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit is asking for input on a proposal to reissue the 20-year special use permit for Camp Richardson Corral located on Highway 89 three miles north of South Lake Tahoe, California.
The proposal would reauthorize the operation and maintenance of the corral and outfitting and guiding services. Guided trips on an approved network of National Forest System trails would continue in the Fallen Leaf Lake and Desolation Wilderness areas, along with wagon and sleigh rides in the Fallen Leaf Lake and Tallac Historic Site areas. Use of the Forest Service administrative site known as Fredericks Pasture would continue for up to 30 head of horses and mules between September 1 and November 15.
At the corral and Fredericks Pasture, best management practices would be installed to address water quality and soil erosion concerns. The proposal would also require steps to manage noxious weeds and threatened and endangered species.
Comments are most helpful if received by September 22, 2014.
