CLARK COUNTY CONSIDERS LAND SWAP INVOLVING CAMP LEE CANYON
Clark County officials may give up 4 acres of the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area at Lee Meadows in exchange for U.S. Forest Service-run land at Camp Lee Canyon totaling 17 acres.
The move would aim to help prevent camp fee increases and requires a congressional delegation’s decision over whether to allow the swap under federal law.
