It’s time to Tamp the Glamp!

It’s time to Tamp the Glamp!

Glamour camping – also known as “Glamping” can be super fun and generate lots of tourism revenue within a community. BUT how much is too much?

There are actually SIX separate campground/RV park proposals currently vying for permit approvals at different locations throughout Teton County. They’re all trying to be operational by next summer.

    The Moose Creek Ranch proposal is untenable and unconscionable for myriad reasons. The whole 20 acres is in a wetlands flood-plain where any septic fields are subjected each spring to complete inundating,thus literally flushing waste into Moose Creek. The current septic settling pond has been illegally constructed less than 50 feet from the Creek. The horse corral waste also is discharged there with every spring snowmelt and rain. Currently, the four guest cabins and their septic systems are illegally built less than 50 feet from the Creek. Moose Creek Ranch has NO water rights to build a required fire-pond.

    This place has been a polluting nightmare since it’s inception and the county has ignored and excused most grievous violations including its mistreatment of horses when it was run as a dude-ranch. The current proposal shows no signs of redemption for the decades of disfunction that Moose Creek Ranch represents.

    I’m hopeful that VARD and Teton County will successfully condemn this proposal.
