Section 7. Abstract


The Early Winters Creek Campground is located on Early Winters Creek, a tributary of the Methow River. The campground is currently not meeting the Aquatic Conservation Strategy Objectives, so the Methow Valley Ranger District conducted an analysis (documented in an Environmental Assessment) to modify the campground. The modifications include designating a portion of the campground as a day-use area, with sites located outside the riparian reserve, and constructing a new campground loop well away from the riparian reserve. The new loop will replace the campsites lost in the day-use designation. The new loop is within the 100-year flood plain, so a sealed-vault toilet will be installed to insure that no waste would leak into Early Winters Creek in a flood. Early Winters Creek supports healthy populations of bull trout, summer steelhead, spring chinook salmon, and westslope cutthroat trout. The project will be competed in 1999, and monitored and evaluated by the Forest Service through regular maintenance and observations in the event of a flood.
