Update on Arcadia Management Area Closures:

Frosty Hollow Bridge at Breakheart Brook in Arcadia Management Area in Exeter remains closed to vehicular traffic until further notice due to storm damage. The bridge remains open to pedestrians. Vehicles may pull off Frosty Hollow Road just before the bridge to park at the Frosty Hollow Pond Fishing Area to access the area on foot.

Due to this closure, DEM’s Division of Fish & Wildlife (DFW) Outdoor Education Office at 1B Camp E-Hun-Tee Place remains closed to the public until further notice. DEM is assessing a timeframe for repairs to Frosty Hollow Bridge and conditions for establishing an alternate route for vehicular access to the area.

For further questions about Fish and Wildlife’s Outdoor Education Office, please call 401-539-0019. Questions regarding the status and conditions of roads and bridges in the Arcadia Management Area can be directed to TeeJay Boudreau.
