Update May 22, 2014:

Based on the analysis of the environmental impacts described in the Environmental Assessment (EA), the Bureau of Reclamation has released a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Decision Notice for the Goose Bay Marina Modernization Project, located at Canyon Ferry Reservoir, Mont.

The boat ramp at Goose Bay Marina will remain open during the 2014 recreation season. Reclamation-operated camping, located west/northwest of Goose Bay Marina, will remain open for public use with minimum and basic services provided, subject to the 14-day stay limit. There will be no gas service at Goose Bay.

Reclamation estimates the majority of the Goose Bay Marina area will be closed through the 2014 and 2015 recreation seasons allowing for required demolition and construction activities, and plans to have a concessionaire in place for the 2016 recreation season.

Update September 5, 2014:

On Sept. 4, 2014, Reclamation awarded a $6.9 million contract to Helena Sand and Gravel for the modernization of the Goose Bay Marina concession area, approximately 25 miles north of Townsend.

The principal components of the work include developing a marina complete with store, fueling area, showers, flush toilets, RV dump stations, potable water fill stations, day use area, picnic areas, group camping areas, RV campsites, water and wastewater systems, accessible dock access, overnight boat trailer parking, electrical/telephone service, and varied landscaping throughout the area.
