What’s Up, Dock? Not the Lake Como Dock

Fall is approaching. The signs are all around, especially at Lake Como, where the swim lines near the beach area and boat dock on the south side were removed due to low water.

Besides recreation, Lake Como is an irrigation source for the Big Ditch, which waters farmland on the east side of the valley. And every summer, the water draws down. And, at a certain point, the dock and the swim lines are not useful.

That time has come, according to Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest. Often, the lake reaches its historic size, much smaller than full pool.

However, until September 1st, the day use charges will still be charged for those who visit Lake Como.

The Lake Como campground is scheduled to remain open until mid-September. The Three Frogs campground will be open through the end of September, but there will be no services.

The historic Wood’s Cabin is available for winter rental, at www.recreation.gov.
