Sunnyside Campground in Cultus Lake, British Columbia is temporarily closed to the public as efforts to recover the campground are underway following heavy flooding in November.
According to a release, the logs and debris that piled up along the foreshore to the west of the boat launch in Sunnyside Campground have now been relocated in preparation for processing.
At the east end of the campground, the grinding of the material was scheduled to start on January 6.
Cultus Lake Park teamed up with the City of Chilliwack’s Environmental Engineering to move larger material and logs off-site for riparian restoration and fish habitat enhancement. In addition, the remaining ground material will be utilized locally for hog fuel.
“The campground and foreshore will be inaccessible to all residents and visitors for the duration of the week as crews will be on site,” the release stated.
Signage will be posted in the campsite alerting the community to avoid this area until work has been completed.
Management does not anticipate any delays in reopening Sunnyside Campground on April 1.
They also reminded campers that the final deadline for seasonal camper refund requests is on January 14.
