Input sought on Camp Rich Corral permit

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit is asking for feedback on a proposal to reissue the Camp Richardson Corral permit.

The proposal would grant a 20-year special use permit to the corral, located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Hwy 89, and reauthorize its operation and maintenance along with outfitting and guiding service.

Guided excursions on approved National Forest System trails would continue in the Fallen Leaf Lake and Desolation Wilderness areas, and wagon and sleigh rides would continue in the Fallen Leaf Lake and Tallac Historic site areas.

The permit would also allow the continued use of Fredericks Pasture, a Forest Service administrative site, for a limited number of horses and mules between Sept. 1 and Nov. 15.

Best management practices would be installed to address water quality and soil erosion concerns at the corral and pasture, according to the Forest Service. The proposal would also require strides to control harmful weeds and endangered species.

The Forest Service says comments are most helpful if it receives them by Sept. 22.
