Road Approved to Avoid N.Y. Campground
At Wednesday’s (Dec. 11) town council meeting, a $35,000 road improvement project was approved for this summer at Lisbon Beach and Campground, the Watertown (N.Y.) Daily Times reported.
The project will see the parking lot by the boat launch expanded to allow for roughly 10 additional parking spaces and will see a road installed that bypasses the campground entirely, giving boaters direct access to the river.
“We’re going to do it as soon as the frost is out of the ground,” Town Councilor Alan D. Dailey said.
The new road will run from the front entrance of the campground, around the volleyball courts to the boat launch, getting boaters away from campers as much as possible.
Campground Director Michael J. O’Neil has advocated for the road, calling it a safety issue. Until November, the town council had opposed the road, but with the campground continuing to generate profit, members of the council changed their mind.
