Do you like to camp along the upper Kenai River? Your rights to do so in a campsite of your own choosing is about to be restricted / prevented! The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is considering a proposal that would restrict camping to no more than three days in the same place, camping only in designated campsites (there are currently no designated campsites on the upper Kenai River), and no camping within 100 yards of the river.
While this site support efforts to maintain riparian salmon habitat, including shoreline vegetation, we also recognize that most or all of the gravel bar campsites currently being used present little or no threat to shoreline vegetation. These restrictions have the potential to severely restrict or even eliminate camping along Southcentral Alaska's most popular salmon fishery. Public comments are being taken until July 20th. At the present time, the KNWR site shows only seven public comments! Make your voice heard by visiting the link right now, and commenting online. http://www.regulations.gov/#!documen...2014-0003-0001
