Hello Smiths

I stopped in tonight but nobody was home.

I am sending this e-mail to shed some light on so many rumors that are floating around in regards to Mc Caslin Campgrounds and trails closing down.

Could you please let me know what is happening? Who is involved? (DNR-NFS-......etc...) Are you closed down?
If you are closed down, why? Is there anything I/we can do to help?

Jeff Olson

Hi Jeff,
Yes, the trails are closed down for now. The DNR is involved as we understand some of the 40's are in Forest Crop. We haven't found out yet which 40's they are and we are waiting to see what they
say about the trails. Also, the DNR told the Trust Co. ( who is in charge of the Dumke property now) that there is some violations in regard to ruts in the roads due to ATV's and trucks running the trails.
Mike is back there now smoothing out some of the trails and ruts. Some of the ruts were made by the loggers when they logged the property but until we find out what the siuation is for sure we have
shut down the trails. Hopefully we will be able to open at least some of them again soon but it all depends. As soon as we find out what's what we will let you know.

Edith Smith

Thank you Edith

I have access to heavy equipment such as skidstear, backhoe, bulldozer, etc......
Remember I only live 30 minuets away and If I can help in any way at all PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I can get large groups of people with shovels also.

Jeff Olson
Ok, I have updated news for those seriously interested in helping out:

Hi Jeff,
I just talked to Mike and he and Paul both said if anyone wants to come and help repair the roads they are welcome to come any time. If anyone wants to come and camp this weekend we will have
free camping for them and also we would have a free lunch of sloppy joes or something.

Ediith Smith
I have been in contact with them and if you want to come up to help out Please P.M. me (or post here) so I can let Edith know how many to expect
They are busy with this and other things also (regular life) try to keep from contacting them directly.

Update: 11/11/09-9:16PM
With limited communication to the party's that are not directly involved, the consensus is that the DNR is looking into the logging that was done there, some of it may have been done when it was still in the forest crop management system.
Main access roads have been rutted up and in need of repair.

What to bring (shovels, dozers, skidstears, work gloves, chains for dragging big rocks and logs, dump trailer) :j:
Looking to be filling in ruts and blocking off some areas with boulders, etc.......
(The plow lift hydraulics on Gillian's Jeep can pick up a good size bolder :twisted: )
They have some campers with heat
