BLM Closing Portions of Prior Flat Campground for Public Safety

(BLM.gov)

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office is immediately closing the upper loop of the Prior Flat Campground located in the Shirley Mountains approximately 30 miles northwest of Medicine Bow, Wyo. as a safety precaution due to potential bear encounters.

Wardens with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department are attempting to capture and relocate a black bear in the area which has been getting into garbage cans in the campground. The closure of the upper loop is effective immediately and is expected to last through this weekend, or until the bear can be contained. Closure signs will be posted and the area will be patrolled by BLM law enforcement. Four of the nine developed campsites in the Prior Flat Campground are located on the upper loop which is affected by the closure. The remaining campsites at Prior Flat Campground will remain open.
