Project Description

This project would improve five campgrounds on the Pass-a-Loutre Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Campground improvements would include new picnic tables, fire pit/barbeque areas, and docks at all campgrounds. The alternative would also install bulkheads at two campgrounds and dredged shallow areas at three other campgrounds. The dredged material would be placed on the adjacent campgrounds to elevate the facility above expected storm-surge inundation elevations. This would protect much of the campground infrastructure during summer tropical storm events. The campground improvements would enhance the experience of campground users visiting the WMA, reduce ongoing erosion, and improve public access. • South Pass Campground -- Install 266 linear feet of bulkhead and associated backfill. Backfill material would come from the adjacent waterway. -- Install 100 linear feet of boat dock. Dock dimensions and construction type would be determined during design. -- Install five mobile picnic tables made of steel dipped in a rubber coating. -- Install five fire pit/barbeques. -- Dredge approximately 6,500 cubic yards of sediment to enhance access to the campground. • Cadro Campground -- Install 100 linear feet of boat dock. Dock dimensions and construction type would be determined during design. -- Install eight mobile picnic tables made of steel dipped in a rubber coating. -- Install eight fire pit/barbeques. • Loomis #1 Campground -- Install 210 linear feet of boat dock. Dock dimensions and construction type would be determined during design. -- Install eight mobile picnic tables made of steel dipped in a rubber c...click on "More Info" link below
