Guano Creek campground permanently closed
Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge will no longer allow seasonal camping at Guano Creek campground. Campers who may be planning to camp at the remote Guano Creek this fall are encouraged to check out Post Meadows Campground instead.
Unlike other public lands, National Wildlife Refuges, such as Hart Mountain Refuge, are managed for wildlife. Guano Creek campground is located nearhabitat which provides important functions and water for local species. The campground, which was previously open from August 1st to December 1st each year, has been degraded by visitors and is in need of restoration.
In an effort to offset some of the camping opportunities lost from closing this remote campground, Refuge staff are taking steps to improve Post Meadows campground. Post Meadows campground is a peaceful, out of the way area, with space for horses, trailers, and tents. This summer, visitors might see Refuge staff working hard to improve facilities at the Post Meadows Campground in order to have it in top shape for campers. In addition to Post Meadows campground, Camp Hart Mountain and Hot Springs campground are also available to overnight visitors. Please see the Visit Us page of the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge website, pick up a brochure, or contact the Refuge for more information on camping and other activities available at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge.
