Dispersed camping has exploded on Bureau of Land Management lands across Grand County. And when visitors spread out, looking for that perfect private campsite, they can encroach on natural resources like native vegetation and wildlife habitat. The BLM is now looking at implementing more camping rules for three places: Utah Rims, Two Rivers, and the Labyrinth Rims/Gemini Bridges areas. Today on the news, we speak with advocates of this plan about why ‘camping anywhere you want’ is no longer viable in Grand County.
