New campground opens at Fisher Grove State Park
REDFIELD (AP) -- Fisher Grove State Park has opened a new 22-site campground.
The campground at the park near Redfield was moved to the east side of the James River after repeated flooding made the bridge unsafe for vehicles.
The new location includes 22 electrical campsites, a new comfort station and a dump station. It sits near the existing playground, picnic area and golf course.
"This new campground will provide a wonderful camping experience for the Redfield area," said
District park manager Becky Graff says with the constant flooding the last few years, local campers have had to travel out of the area to enjoy state park campsites.
The park is completing some final touches, but work is expected to be done by July 4.
