The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kingman Field Office has increased camping fees at three northwestern Arizona campgrounds.

Under the new rates the Burro Creek Campground individual sites are $14 per night and group site $50. Wild Cow Springs Campground individual sites are $8 per night and group site $20. At Windy Point Campground individual sites are $8 per night.

In 2009, the BLM Kingman published the Draft Kingman Amenity Fee Sites Business Plan which detailed how fees have been spent in the past and how the Kingman Field Office plans to use fee revenues in the future. The Business Plan was made available to the public and the Arizona Resource Advisory Council Recreation Subcommittee (made up of private citizens) approved the increases in late 2009.

“Increasing camping fees is one of the least popular things we do,” said BLM Kingman Resources Manager Jackie Neckels. “But, cutting services such as supplying running water, garbage pickup, and offering dump stations – is equally unpopular.”

“We’ve been able to hold fees at the same rate for eleven years,” Neckels continued. “Increases in the costs of labor and fuel have finally forced us to look at increasing the rates. Our new fee changes are commensurate with fees charged at campgrounds with similar amenities within a 150-mile radius of Kingman.”
