Applications for Season Camping at Imperial Wildlife Area Now Being Accepted
The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is accepting applications for limited camping permits during waterfowl hunting season at Imperial Wildlife Area (IWA). All camping in the area is by permit only in designated sites; permit holders may use their assigned space at any time during the 2009-10 season.
Applications must be received at the IWA office in Niland by 3 p.m. Friday, September 25. The permit drawing will be held at noon Tuesday, October 6 at the IWA office. The drawing is open to the public, as successful applicants will be allowed to choose their own space at the time of selection. Applicants who are unable to attend the drawing but would like to designate someone to choose a space on their behalf may do so as long as the designee has written permission from the applicant. If a drawn applicant is not present, DFG will assign a space number on his or her behalf.
There is no cost to apply for the drawing; permits are also free for those applicants who are selected.
To obtain an application and rules related to the drawing, contact Imperial Wildlife Area, 8700 Davis Road, Niland, CA, 92257 or fax a request to (760) 359-0709. Additional information may be obtained by calling (760) 359-0577.
