As provided for in this management plan, the recreation management policy is to provide for the orderly use of public lands and waters within the recreational river land use district. The development of selected land and river-oriented recreational facilities and the maintenance to these could help protect the rights of private landowners, ensure quietude, prohibit trespassing, and maintain the essential quality of wild and scenic river land use districts as provided in part 6105.0210.
As provided for in part 6105.0100, subpart 3 and the management plan, development of public or private recreational facilities within the recreational river land use district shall conform to the design specification guidelines shown in this plan.
No public river-oriented camping facilities will be provided in close proximity to private recreational developments which are designed to meet this need.
The recreational use of the north fork of the Crow recreational river and adjacent state lands will be regulated where necessary to ensure that the use does not adversely affect the values for which the river qualified for designation.
The commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources adopts the recreation management maps for the protection, recreational use, and management of public lands or interests in land, for the north fork of the Crow recreational river and its adjacent lands within the recreational river land use district. The locations, types, and number of sites shown on the recreation management map are recommendations.
The Division of Parks and Recreation shall allocate funds for maintenance of the Department of Natural Resources' recreational facilities within the north fork of the Crow recreational river area from the department's river development and maintenance account.
The DNR's Division of Enforcement shall enter into discussions with the local units of government concerning delineation of responsibilities for enforcement of applicable wild, scenic, and recreational river regulations.
Additional public snowmobile trails may be established within the land use district, when developed in cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources.
Development of any new recreational facilities (other than those shown on the recreation management map) by the DNR shall be done only if assurances can be made that these facilities, and any increased use caused by them, will not adversely affect the quality of the river. Local authorities shall be consulted prior to future development of recreational facilities by the DNR.
