Current Briefs for RV Parks and Campgrounds
From WKYT-TV, Lexington:
Authorities have been able to track a Floyd County attorney who has been missing more than two weeks by tracking his use of a Kampgrounds of America (KOA) Rewards Kard.
Attorney Ned Pillersdorf is helping with the investigation.
He says they were able to hack into Martin city attorney Clyde Johnson’s Kampgrounds of America rewards card.
His card shows that he stayed at a campground in Bowling Green, Ky., and then traveled to North Little Rock, Ark.
Pillersdorf says they believe Johnson is possibly headed for Oklahoma.
He asks anyone with friends or family out that way to keep an eye out for a silver Nissan pick up truck pulling a camper. Friends say he told them he was going on a weekend fishing trip and never came back.
Police say he was driving a silver Nissan pickup truck pulling a camper.
“We ask anybody in the community that may know his whereabouts to call in contact us. We just need to locate him. His whereabouts don’t need to be released. We just need to locate him and make sure that he is in fact safe,” said Kentucky State Police Trooper Shaun Little.
Anyone with information should call KSP Post 9.
From the Salt Lake (Utah) Tribune:
A norovirus outbreak that sickened more than 100 people at Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks appears to have subsided.
Officials from both parks say the number of confirmed cases of the gastrointestinal bug has returned to near normal levels.
A rash of reports of the illness began in the Mammoth area of Yellowstone in mid-June. Cases were reported at Grand Teton National Park a week later.
The parks and their concessionaires disinfected public areas and quarantine workers who displayed symptoms of the illness.
Chuck Harris is manager at Grand Teton Medical Clinic at Jackson Lake Lodge. He tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that it was one of the more “atypical” spikes in gastrointestinal illness he has seen in his 29 years working in the park.
From the South Bend Tribune:
If you’ve ever driven by the small but effective Sunny Haven Recreation Park sign on Anderson Road in Granger, you likely have wondered: What the heck is going on in there?
The small white sign with blue and red letters sits at the outset of a gravel road engulfed by a forest of trees leading to the, well, haven.
Saturday, The Tribune was offered a peek inside as the naturist club celebrated the 13th World Record Skinny-Dip attempt for having the most people skinny dipping at a given time. Some of the 250 naturist clubs across the nation participate at the same time to seek the record.

From The Daily News, Galveston County:
City commissioners will meet today to discuss a moratorium on new RV parks in Hitchcock and to consider implementing a drought plan.
The moratorium was put in place two years ago when the handful of RV parks in the city failed to reach full capacity.

From First Coast News:
Charles Ross found out the hard way that drivers have to wear their seat belts on campgrounds too.
Ross had just left his driveway and was still in a campground in Yulee when a policeman, standing near the exit, stopped him. Ross tried to argue that he was on private property, but he was still given a $101 ticket for violation of the seat belt law.
First Coast News checked, and the law does not address public or private property. It simply states it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle in Florida unless the person is restrained by a safety belt.
Ross has 30 days to appeal the $101 citation and said he plans to fight it.
