Expect Lake Como Logging Almost Every Day of the Week

The Bitterroot National Forest crews are logging beetle-killed and infested trees and thinning other forest stands around Lake Como.

The 210-acre project has required the closure of some popular areas, including the Lake Como boat launch on the south side of the lake, according to Tod McKay of the USFS.

McKay said the logging will not be just during the weekdays, but due to the recent dry weather, crews are able to increase their work into the weekends. He said travelers should be aware of logging traffic whenever they visit the lake.

Those who want access to the lake should park on the north side by the beach and picnic area.

The plan is to have the majority of the work done by Memorial Day. Even if the work is not done, the boat ramp and all campgrounds will be open during that holiday weekend.
