A public forum to discuss the possibility of opening Tuttle Point Campground at Pymatuning State Park is scheduled for next week, a report said.
The program runs from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. at the North Shenango Township Community Center located in Espyville, North Shenango Township, Crawford County in Pennsylvania.
State Senator Michele Brooks, whose district is in Crawford County, has coordinated the meeting along with North Shenango Township supervisors, North and South Shenango Joint Municipal Authority, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and the Pennsylvania Department of General Services.
Tuttle Point, which is the third campground of Pymatuning State Park, was shut down by the state in 2010 in order to cut costs. Jamestown and Linesville, which are the park’s two other campgrounds, are in operation.
The event will give residents the chance to discuss and consider ideas for opening the campground, which is planned for 2023’s camping season.
Tuttle Point, which is located to the north of the Route 285 causeway, is scheduled to be rebuilt in 2022 and will be equipped to provide a full-service camping facility. It is scheduled to reopen in 2023 for the camping season.
