A campground in Iowa will be closed in 2022 as the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) launches its lake restoration project.
The Iowa DNR began draining the water in July to rebuild the Lake Ahquabi State Park’s health and quality. It is now beginning a two-year process of rebuilding the lake’s rehabilitation.
Although the concession stand and beach are closed, the lodge and shelter will be open until the end of summer. Due to the lake’s low water levels, the campground, lodge, and shelter will close in 2022.
Fishing in the artificial structure first opened to the public in 1935 is still possible, and the campground is still open.
They said that many people have discovered to love the outdoors since the beginning of the spring and summer.
”There have been lots of new campers, people who bought campers for the first time,” said one camping host.
The restoration project is expected to be accomplished in spring 2023. It is also estimated that the project will cost $6 million to $8 million.
