  1. Brenda pryor says:

    Was wondering why the camp grounds are not opened as of May 1st? That is the states park not your to decide when it should be opened! Trying to take out rights away one by one! That is our state park! Bad enough we can only get back 5 short months and now it is still not opened!

    • Hi Brenda,
      That’s a good question. We (at CampsitePhotos.com) have not been able to find out why the campground hasn’t opened yet. It usually opens May 1. All we’ve been able to find is that it is “closed until further notice”.
