Members of the Scott County Conservation Board and Board of Supervisors were on hand to cut the ribbon to officially open the campground and to tour the area improvements: some of which include remodeled restrooms, new electrical and water hookups, new hard surfaced roadways and camping pads, and new playground equipment. These improvements, which total more than $400,000, have been paid for with funds from the Board of Supervisors, the Conservation Board's Capital Improvements, and reimbursements from FEMA, as a result of the flooding.
