Commissioners Hear Kingsley Campground Concept

Hood River County Commissioners heard a proposal from County Forest Manager Doug Thiesies to create a new campground at Kingsley Reservoir once expansion of that facility is finished.  The current campground at Kingsley will be flooded when the reservoir expansion by Farmers Irrigation District is done.  The concept plan presented by the County Forestry Department included a first phase on the east side of the reservoir that would involve three major group camping sites, a few single vehicle camping spurs, RV sites and a dump station, day-use parking, picnic shelter, and boat ramp, with a second phase constructing more camp sites on the southwestern end of the reservoir.  Commission Chair Ron Rivers said it was an impressive plan, but there are some important questions to be answered, most notably how to fund it.  Commissioners asked Thiesies to bring back more details, including cost figures, at their next meeting September 18.
