First they lock it down at night, now they want to "improve" it; what next... fees?

we have gone there "free" for three generations now. get the State involved, and it will be screwed up and too expensive for a family to go. Can you just imagine the rules and regs they will come up with? When was the last time anyone was seriously injured there? Guess we will just have to find some forest land to tear up..

good luck on the fed land to use they are shuting it down for off roading in the forest so be careful with that. and for the orovile area this was a good place to ride but know that the state is takein it over you will have to pay alot to use it. look at the boating areas that used to be free.

It's worth more to the State as a "protected environment" (notice on one of their slides they were mapping "vernal pools", etc.) than it is a recreational spot. It will be another instance of the State Parks screwing us, just like every other local recreation that used to be freely accessible.

yep...state dont care one bit about "developing" the area for use...they see an untaped income potential and feel that throwing some crap together in the clay pit will justify them being able to charge to use it...how much do you think????$8,$10,$15 a day to use it??? bet it will be higher still!!

the "vernal pools" are seasonal mudpuddles..

I know that, you know that, just about everyone that isn't an enviro-whacko knows that, but they'll still use that to claim we are "impacting the environment".
