Changes to Bighorn National Forest camping regulations coming in 2023 | Local News


SHERIDAN — The Bighorn National Forest is initiating a process to change the way camping is regulated on the forest to be effective in January 2023.

During the summer of 2022, managers will open a public comment period to update the regulations based on recommendations from the citizen-led Dispersed Camping Task Force. The proposal will include changing the moving requirement, a consistent approach to scenic by-way management where U.S. Highway 16 would have a no-camping buffer like U.S. Highways 14 and 14A, and consistency with all other national forests in the region to change to a year-round 14-day stay limit.
