Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has granted a $200,000-fund to Lake Guntersville State Park to rebuild a campground that was ravaged by a tornado in April 2011, a report said.

Town Creek Campground has since been opened to the public. However, the department has stated that more improvements and work are required.

Alabama has an abundance of natural resources, and our state parks are great preservers of that,” Governor Ivey said. “Every year, our parks attract thousands of people both from Alabama and out of the state who are seeking venues to relax and enjoy nature and the company of others. I am pleased to announce this grant that will help continue restoring the beautiful Lake Guntersville.”

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will utilize the funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission on the project.

The ARC money will help construct 12 campsites, develop an existing gravel road, as well as supply electricity, water, drainage, and sewage improvements for each campsite.

The state’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’s State Parks Division has allocated $300,000 for the project.
