Army Corps Campgrounds in Ozarks Improved
Mark Case is bursting with pride for improvements to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' campgrounds around Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes along the Arkansas-Missouri border, the Baxter Bulletin reported.
Chief of recreation for the Mountain Home Corps Project Office, Case told The Bulletin Wednesday (Feb. 16) that most of the improved campsites can now accommodate 50-foot recreational vehicles and offer 50-amp electrical service in addition to the traditional furnishings for picnicking and cooking .
"In my 20 years, I think our facilities are in the finest shape they've ever been in," Case said.
Along with the bigger, reconfigured campsites, 2011 parks visitors will find new toilet and shower facilities at the Corps' major parks — Jordan, Cranfield, Robinson Point, Tucker Hollow and Lakeview — in places before served by pit- or vault-type toilets that did not include showers.
