The East Dunes Campground within the Sand Lake Recreation Area will be closed Monday, July 6, until mid-September while it undergoes expansion.
The expansion project will add 20 sites to the north end of the East Dunes Camping Area, and replaces the same number of sites from the Sandbeach Campground which were washed away from high waves during winter storms in 2011 and 2012.
Travelers to the Sand Lake Recreation Area should expect some traffic congestion as construction equipment moves in and out of the area. Temporary traffic signage will be set up to facilitate the flow of traffic.
