Flooded Calif. Campground Will Reopen In May
Campers will soon return to Pismo Beach when the California State Parks campground that closed for months because of flooding from January’s heavy rains reopens next month, the San Luis Obispo Tribune reported.
“As I’m sure you are aware, the storms continued quite some time, causing additional damage and flooding,” Dena Bellman of California State Parks said Wednesday (April 19) about the Pismo Beach State Beach Campground. “There is still standing water in some areas of the park, however we have been able to get in and begin all the necessary evaluations and testing of facilities, and tree crews are in the park this week working on the downed and unstable trees.”
Bellman said it is difficult to estimate how much money the facility, also known as the North Beach Campground, lost in revenue while it was closed, though she estimated it was about $200,000.
