The Emery County Recreation Department has been hard at work improving Miller Flat Road. They restored and improved 48 campsites on the south side of the reservoir and are now considering changing four of these to fee sites. This would include one group and three family campsites. Picnic tables, a bathroom and improved road access have been added to the area.
Manti La-Sal National Forest manager Bill Broadbear, stated that they interviewed over 90 people during the summer about the possibility of adding a fee to those sites. He stated that everyone interviewed thought it was worthwhile.
Fees would allow camp spots to be reserved. Broadbear also spoke about adding the Seely Creek guard station and surrounding dwellings on a list that would act as rental cabins to the public.
