Laramie, WY (AP) - Plans are being made to remove an old University of Wyoming recreation camp in Medicine Bow National Forest near Centennial.

The university hasn't used the camp since 2009 and UW officials decided last year that keeping the camp is no longer worth the cost.

The Laramie Boomerang reports ( ) the recreation camp consists of 20 structures including cabins, a lodge and a bath house. The structures will be removed unless somebody presents a proposal soon to take over UW's permit.

The camp dates to 1935 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. UW spokesman Chad Baldwin says the university would pay for the removal of the buildings.

He says the contractor hired for the job would likely at least reuse some of the materials.
