Elliston-Area Campsites Blocked Off to Motorized Vehicles
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Barriers are being put up around areas of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest to keep out vehicles, forcing campers to walk to campsites that are near waterways.
The goal is to reduce damage caused to wetland areas and river banks.
The plan calls for restoration projects at nearly 30 sites.
According to the Helena Independent Record , some opponents say the plan goes too far and other groups say they don't go far enough.
