AHSAHKA, Idaho. – Dworshak staff have closed Dent Acres recreation area, which includes the Dent Acres Campground and boat ramp, to the public until further notice due to a road slide.
The slide, which manifested this summer on Old Dent Road, impedes safe access to the area and has grown worse with recent precipitation. Measurements show that the road has dropped 2 inches around most of the cracked surface. In some areas, readings show a 6-inch drop. Dworshak staff closed the area as of November 12 to prevent visitors from becoming trapped if the slide continues.
The boat ramps at Big Eddy, Bruce’s Eddy 1, and Freeman Creek (Dworshak State Park) currently provide access to the reservoir. The boat ramp at Grandad is currently out of the water.
