Big Cimarron Campground is a Fee Area
Campground was closed for repairs. There
are several other established campgrounds
that charge fees.

There are Moose in the Area...
We haven't seen any, but there is a sign
warning hunters to know what they are
shooting.

HOW TO STOP A CHARGING MOOSE
If a moose charges at you, stand behind
a tree and wave your arms. The moose
will charge straight into the tree and you
have a nice meal...
