Despite the Governor opening campgrounds tomorrow, the East Lake Campground will not open until 5:00 am Friday May 15 per her first proclamation. Since we thought we would be closed until May 15, we scheduled the road leading to the campground to be repaired this weekend. It should be completed mid next week and we will open the campground May 15.
