A decade-long tenure of managing the Granite Creek Hot Springs and campground will come to an end this May for a local company and a company for southern Utah will take over the task along with managing 16 other campgrounds on the Bridger Teton National Forest.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains the change is the result of a bidding process that began last June.  She says the Forest had put out a very detailed prospectus with a list of requirements for potential concessioners.  She says beyond that, applicants were invited to offer other things that they could do for the benefit of those facilities they would manage.  Cernicek says, “This company has offered to do some exceptional work for us – for many of the facilities throughout the Snake River Canyon and in a lot of the areas that were included in the prospectus; and we are eager to start a working relationship with them.” Among the campgrounds Aud and Di Campground Services of Duck Creek Village, Utah will manage are the Hatchet, Turpin Meadows, Pacific Creek and Sheffield Campgrounds on the Buffalo Ranger District, and Kozy, Hoback, East Table Campground and Group Site, Little Cottonwood Group Site, Station Creek  Campground and Group Site, Wolf Creek, Curtis Canyon, Atherton Creek, Crystal Creek and Crystal Creek Overflow Campground sites on the Jackson Ranger District in addition to the premium sites at Granite Creek.  Cernicek says those bidding were all tremendously competitive and any would have done an exemplary job of managing the facilities.
