Dorr Road Recreation Site closed from April 15 to May 1, 2019.

Under the Forest and Range Practices Act, the Province is closing the Dorr Road Recreation Site from April 15 to May 1, 2019, to protect against mud bogging damage. The Information Bulletin provides additional details on this closure.

Temporary closure of the Dorr Road Recreation Site, and efforts to regulate and enforce the mud bogging at Umbrella Beach, is not within the mandate of the Koocanusa Recreation Steering Committee (KRSC). The KRSC is focused on developing and implementing the Koocanusa Recreation Strategy, and improving management of Crown land camping and trail-based recreation across the Koocanusa. Mud bogging is not considered a legitimate activity and is neither supported nor included in the Strategy.
