The Spring Park primitive campground at Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area is temporarily closed after sustaining storm damage Labor Day weekend.
The National Weather Service estimated winds in the area of more than 65 mph, which caused significant tree and road damage. Nebraska Game and Parks Commission employees will begin cleanup of the area next week. Game and Parks staff estimate cleanup will take until the end of September. The campground will reopen after cleanup efforts are complete.
The boat ramp and western portions of Spring Park will remain open during this time. Other campgrounds at the park remain open, as well.
