The random drawing will be conducted in cooperation with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest staff, ensuring complete fairness in drawing results. We understand that you may have questions regarding the location and physical capabilities of the new moorage, and we encourage you to contact us through email at or phone at 208-757-3999.
