Encampment - Road Open?

Does anyone have any info about whether the road to Hog Park is open?

That thing is BIG right now.

Just wanting to bump this up, hoping to get on it next weekend. June 6/7
Anybody heard if the road is open, or been up to the put-in yet?

You Wyo guys are supposed to be telling us if it is.

I dont know personally but thinking it's gotta be open by now. Schizzle and a slew of us were making plans today to get in there next weekend. We've got the big rigs, guns, dirt bikes and the positive mental attitude to make it happen soon...before it drops out too much.

Touche' You're right, but Jackson is a lot farther away from there than Steamboat or the Fort. Usually, you guys beat us Jackson folks in there by a few days. I have the Encampment ranger district number stashed away somewhere, will have to dig it up. Don't have the Hog Park camp ground number, didn't know about there was one.

Thanks,

Wyopadlr, did you have your location on there last night or was i too drunk to notice?

The sweet little old lady in the office said the road to hog park is still closed. Said someone looked into it on friday. I'm afraid they didn't give'er enough and still kinda sorta wanna get in there.

Yah, I just called, too. She's probably tired of giving the same answer. She said unless a 'private citizen' with a big 4wd busted the drifts thru, that it was still more or less closed because they hadn't sent a plow crew up there yet. Maybe by the weekend?

Yeah, it's always on there, but not really that important. Have truck, will travel. Did the Bear in Grace, Idaho yesterday, on a special release, and was pleasantly surprised to see one car with CO plates at the put-in. Long drive for someone, unless they were just passing thru on safari. Didn't get a chance to talk to 'em.
