We, the property owners and residents of the Rockland and East Fork neighborhood, hereby request that the East Fork Rock Creek campground be closed to overnight camping and designated day use only. The risk of catastrophic wildfire emanating from illegal campfires and fireworks of overnight campers, as well as the difficulty of an effective response by a fire department to a wildfire, and illegal activities mandate this request. In addition, the overnight camping has resulted in large amounts of human waste washing into the rock creek. Garbage and wide scale ATV riding in wetlands, the creek, and grazing areas is destroying the area. The current use of this site for camping and ATV use is a serious threat to the fish and public health.

We request that the campgrounds be closed to overnight camping and vehicles until the following issues are met:

1) Numbered campsites not to exceed 10 designated areas at least 50 feet away from the creek

2) Public restrooms at the two entry points

3) Trash receptacles at the two entry points

4) Only one road into the designated campsites. All other current trails and roads to be leveled and reseeded to native grasses

5) A minimum of $25 dollars per night fee.

6) An on-site camp host to collect the fees and monitor the campers for compliance to the rules.
