Project Description

Campground improvements at the five (5) existing campgrounds throughout the WMA will include new picnic tables, fire pit/barbecue areas, and docks at all campgrounds. The project also includes the installation of bulkheads at two campgrounds and site elevation via dredged material placement at three other campgrounds. Dredged material from nearby shallow areas would be placed on the adjacent campgrounds to elevate the facilities 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 use. Campgrounds included are South Pass, Cadro, Loomis #1, Loomis #2 and Southeast Pass.
