Thursday, May 18, the Lake Como boat launch area re-opens.

The area was closed last month so 20 additional parking spaces could be built for boat trailers and vehicles. The entrance road was also re-paved.

The boat ramp itself was widened and lengthened last year, and (not shown in the photo) a new, wider boat dock has been installed that will allow boats to be tied up on both sides.

Work closes the Beach area
However, with the boat launch opening comes another temporary closure.

Logging of beetle-killed trees near the Three Frogs Campground has caused a closure on the north side of the lake, including the popular beach and picnic areas.

The area will be re-opened in time for activities this weekend.
