Riggins Rodeo: BLM camping back on

newsroom@idahostatesman.comApril 30, 2013 

The Bureau of Land Management, the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office and the Salmon River Cowboy’s Association worked out a solution to keep Shorts Bar and Island Bar campgrounds open during the Riggins Rodeo.

Last week, the BLM announced Shorts Bar and Island Bar campgrounds would be closed May 3 to 5 because the agency could not afford to provide extra services like law enforcement patrols, portable toilets and garbage services during the rodeo due to federal budget cuts.
