WASHINGTON, DC- U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) sent a letter to the Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, Abigail R. Kimbell, expressing his concern over the recent recommendations by the Forest Service to close or decommission several campgrounds and recreation facilities in the Allegheny National Forest.
“The recreation facilities in Allegheny National Forest are an integral part of the northwestern Pennsylvania economy, and they are important on a personal level to many people throughout the state,” wrote Senator Casey.
In the letter, Senator Casey seeks to find out more information about the possible closures of the campgrounds at Twin Lakes Park, Loleta Recreation Facility and Kiasutha Park.
Casey went on to write, “I request that you provide my office with some information on the Forest Service’s decisions to close and/or reduce service at Allegheny’s recreational facilities. I would also appreciate information on what this means for the long-term future of the facilities.”
