A Motion was made for the year of 2022 to be a 'transitional' year and moving forward into 2023 the use of panels will be BANNED in all FOESA Campgrounds.
As of JANUARY 1st, 2023 ALL panels in ANY FOESA CAMPGROUND WILL BE PROHIBITED.
Please understand, we are merely trying to allow the safety of ALL fellow members/campers be granted. We have provided 2022 as a transitional year so everyone can come prepared for next year. This motion was made and voted on by FOESA members at our AGM. The use provided highlines/stalling is a permitted, as well as Tying to your trailer or the use of 'homemade' highlines between Trucks & Campers.
*As always tying to any tree in any FOESA campground is PROHIBITED.
PANTHER ROAD & CAMPGROUND UPDATE: According to Public Lands, the Panther Road, trails and campground are now open to OHVs. The trunk road is also open from south of Mountainaire to the Coal Camp Road and various spots from there to Highway 11. There will be enforcement for speed limits and alcohol use. More information is available on this year's Bighorn maps. Public Lands is making a new map on trails South of the Red Deer River available at Mountainaire Lodge.
Unfortunately someone has taken it upon themselves to put up signs prohibiting OHVs on the Panther Road and in the campground. These have been taken down. If you see a person putting up signs or doing anything that looks out of place, please take a picture and FOESA will send it to enforcement.
2022 is shaping up to be another busy year for FOESA, work has commenced at Pepper's Lake Campground.
August 21, 2021 saw another successful poker rally held at the Eagle Creek Campground with great weather and an impressive turnout with 156 participants. This year saw the meal in a little different fashion with a chili cookoff which was enjoyed by all. The evening was then topped off with some songs and socializing around the campfire. Thank you to all our sponsors and participants, you are what made our event the success it was!
