King Range Fire Campout

May 18 @ 10:00 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm

Exploring fuels reduction and fire as a natural element in our ecosystem, on the weekend of May 18 & 19 Friends of the Lost Coast & BLM King Range are pleased to host the King Range Fire Campout in King Range National Conservation Area.

Based out of the Bureau of Land Management’s Tolkan Campground on King Peak Rd, the weekend will include a mix of short walks, interpretive talks, and field outings to various remote destinations in the King Range, plus a potluck on Saturday evening.
On Saturday, Bureau of Land Management staff will share their recent fuels reduction work on Paradise Ridge Road amid dramatic views and varied forest types. On Sunday, we’ll hike the Buck Creek Trail to look at the aftermath of the 2015 Horse fire in King Range Wilderness. We’ll see natural fire recovery in the wilderness against magnificent views of the coast.
Camping at Tolkan includes developed sites with fire rings, picnic tables, and vault toilets. Water is not provided; bring your own water for the weekend. Shared group campsites are free and private campsites, if available, are $15 per night.
Non-camping locals are welcome to join for the daily outings and Saturday potluck. There is no charge to participate. Enrollment is limited, however, and advance registration is required for all events.  If you would like to attend, please contact Susan Nolan [email protected] with the number in your party and events you plan to attend/nights you plan to camp.  This event is sponsored in part by the Environmental Protection Information Center.
