National Public Lands Day at James Kipp Recreation Area

​James Kipp Recreation Area is a well developed site used by fishermen, hunters, picnickers, floaters and the traveling public. It is the end of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument and the Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River.  This site experienced severe flooding in 2011and again in 2014. Many of the campsites incurred extreme sediment deposition which in some cases rendered fire rings completely useless or severely degraded. Though temporary fixes were completed, the fire rings (approximately 50 in number) in some cases require complete removal, and resetting to provide the most efficient use.  In addition, the rings will be fitted with earth anchor ground cables to inhibit theft.   Painting of the site storage building began last NPLD (FY15) but was not completed. Volunteers will resume the project again this year. The remainder of work consists of general site clean-up, invasive weed removal, and renovating campsites/roads/parking areas within this recreation area. 

*NPLD Site located at Hwy 191 North & Fred Robinson Bridge.
