Potter’s Creek Campground Closes for Resurfacing
Potter’s Creek Park Campground closed earlier today for road, campsite pullout and parking lot resurfacing, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Canyon Lake (USACE) announced in a press release issued this morning.
The public boat ramp outside of Potter’s Creek remains open for public use.
If the weather cooperates, work at the park, located at 2881 Potter’s Creek Rd., will be completed by the third week of July.
Road resurfacing also is scheduled at project headquarters and the Dam Service Road. This work is scheduled for completion by early August.
“This is what we are waiting for, so that we can install the bump-stops, and get it reopened to pedestrians,” said Jen Crownover, Comal County Commissioner Pct. 4, who is spearheading efforts to reopen the road as part of her Dam Community Alliance. “After the resurfacing of the service road, we will get the bump-stops installed as soon as possible. “The bump-stops arrived last week, so all the supplies are in place.”
USACE said the resurfacing project was originally scheduled before the summer season but was delayed due to the Fourth of July holiday, weather, as well as flooding at several other lakes.
Its Capitol Regional Office contracted for paving to be completed at five other lakes managed by the Corps.
Campers affected by reservation cancellations received full refunds.
“Once the work is completed, the park will reopen as soon as possible and campers with cancelled reservations will be given campsite vouchers where applicable and the opportunity to rebook before the sites are released to the rest of the public,” USACE noted in its press release. “Canyon Lake personnel will directly contact the affected campers.
“We are working to restore normal operations as soon as possible.”
