(Chugach, Turnagain Arm Region)
The Bird Creek Campground and its immediate vicinity located south of the Seward Highway and to the north of the Indian to Girdwood National Recreation Pathway is closed by Directors Order to the public as of 20 May, 2011.
Dangerous conditions exist due to the substantial stands of dead and dying spruce trees which may fall or unexpectedly snap off and drop without warning. To protect the health and safety of the public and implement management responsibilities, this area is being closed to the public until the hazard is abated.
Additionally, the Bird Creek Campground is scheduled for a rehabilitation project during the summer of 2012. The campground and its immediate vicinity will remain closed until completion of the rehabilitation project. It is anticipated that this closure will conclude about August 2013.
