Eagle County Open Space (which is supported by Eagle County property owners) bought both State Bridge Landing and Two Bridges River Access sites, but given our small staff we are working closely with the BLM to help manage these properties.
State Bridge is open until mid-April, then closed for construction until at least Memorial Day, construction time lines are always tricky, it may take longer. We will be building a boat launch, installing restrooms and changing screens, improving the parking area, installing a phone, drilling a well, and completing several other improvements. Stay tuned and feel free to call me at 970-328-8698.
BLM is planning to have a camp host on site to assit with parking, questions, and general organization. Both sites will be day use only and will be enforced by the camp host and the police.
Both sites will be open to everyone when completed, commercial and private boaters. The fees will be the same, $3 per car for private boaters and $1 per person for commercial boaters. Fees cover the cost of providing services, such as ramp maintenance, toilet paper, cleaning toilets, trash, water, etc.
State Bridge Lodge will hold concerts this year and the BLM will be renewing their permit to allow camping.
As always, please feel free to call me. We will do our best to have these sites available as soon as possible.
