Keji Campground Cleanup
Sun May 4th

Well it’s almost here! Spring is thinking about showing up finally…..saw some spring flowers peaking above ground the other day. Even the ice on the lakes is starting to melt!

 It has been a while since a proper Campground cleanup at Keji has been done….so…..

 Let’s take advantage of spending a day at the park before it officially opens for the season to tidy things up a bit. Looking for volunteers to clean up sites by looking for trash, cutting strings and ropes from the trees, and removing nails from trees.

 Details:

-          When: Sun May 4th (rain date, Sun May 11th)

-          Time: 10:00am – 3:00pm

-          Where: meet at the Mill Falls Shelter for instructions

-          Bring appropriate cloths, Gloves, Cutting tools, Prybar or hammer (there will be some of these items there as well)

-          Bring a lunch to keep you going.

-          Bug Juice in case they decide early May is a good time to feed!! 

When we are done at 3pm there will be a BBQ sponsored by Friends of Keji at the Mill Falls shelter.

 So clear your calendar…grab some friends and let’s see how much junk we can collect! Please let me know if you are able to attend....and how many in your group so we can plan the day (click here to send an email)

Hope to see as many as possible!

  • Access to the main park/site road is weather-dependant as there will be no winter maintenance.
  • Jeremy's Bay Campground and Jim Charles Point Group Campground and backcountry campsites will be closed.
  • The annual closure of Eel Weir Road and the Big Dam Road is weather-dependant. The gates on the Eel Weir Road (at Grafton Lake) and on Big Dam Road will be locked in the fall and reopened in the spring, as conditions permit.
  • Available for day-use only: all picnic shelters and backcountry cabins (including Mason's cabin, Wil-Bo-Wil cabin and the shelter at Eel Weir). Local firewood is available for purchase in the surrounding area.
