Campground to Stay Open to House Holiday Workers
Improvements have been made at a central Kentucky campground to help out people who camp there while working at Amazon.com's distribution center in Campbellsville during the holidays, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.
The campground at Green River Lake State Park usually closes at the end of October, but the Kentucky Department of Parks was asked to keep the campground open during November and December. Improvements were also made, including adding frost-free water hydrants and wireless Internet.
The distribution center is Taylor County's largest employer. Amazon.com employs 1,200 full-time workers there and adds another 3,000 temporary workers during the peak holiday season. The Parks Department says more than 500 of the temporary workers camp in the area.
