UPDATE: 5/25/17 Big Creek Road is open from Meadow Valley to Bucks Lake……still working on Oro-Quincy Highway.
UPDATE: 5/24/17 County hopes to have Big Creek and Oro-Quincy Highway open by the weekend, Maybe….. Better call first to confirm the back roads open or suffer the long detour back to the canyon and up to Quincy.
There’s still plenty of snow so access is limited to most campgrounds, and the crews are busy trying to get the campgrounds cleaned up and ready for your arrival. Might want to call to confirm the campground you want to stay at is open.
We will post pictures as we get them on this site to give you a glimpse into the amount of snow still around. If you had plans to come up on Memorial Day, your plan may be in jeopardy.
Back roads still closed due to snow.
The County will start plowing to the Fire House on Monday 5-1-17 They plan to repair the roadway near the Haskins Bridge.
Cutting to the chase….. the Road Department will NOT be plowing any time soon. They are out of money due to the severe winter and are waiting for emergency money to arrive from the federal government, or the state. Or for the snow to melt enough for them to plow without spending much money.
I will post here when I learn more…..
Thank you Sheriff Hagwood for sending your deputies out to Bucks Lake to apprehend the person responsible for burglarizing several cabin and a business. This was occurring over several days but the vigilant deputies grouped up and went door to door in 5-6 feet of snow to catch this bad guy.
It was not an easy task in cold snowing and rain conditions but under the direction of their Sargent they tracked the criminal to his hiding place in a local cabin, and with team work they apprehended the bad guy. I must say these deputies had to go miles over snow on foot, using several snowmobiles and a snow cat to help provide transport.
I want to thank you for your service, I am sure our Bucks Lake Community appreciates your dedication and we owe you a debt of gratitude.
Job Well Done
