Facilities Reopen at Lake Shelbyville

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Lake Shelbyville - Beginning today, Thursday, October 17, 2013 the facilities managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that were closed due to the federal government shutdown are being reopened. These facilities include campgrounds, boat ramps, day use areas and hunter/fishermen parking lots. All facilities normally open at this time of year will be open for use Friday, October 18, 2013. The campgrounds that are open follow:
-	Lithia Springs Campground will be open until it closes for the season Sunday, October 27, 2013.
-	Bo Wood Campground will be open until it closes for the season Sunday, October 27, 2013 except for campsites 114 through 141, which close Monday, December 2, 2013.
-	Lone Point Campground Walleye Loop (sites 86 through 95) will be until it closes Monday, December 2, 2013.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be keeping Lone Point Recreation Area campsites 86 through 95 and Bo Wood Recreation Area campsites 114 through 141 open until Monday, December 2, 2013.  These campsites will be available on a first-come first-served individual site basis.  There will be no reservations available for these sites.  The camping fee for these sites will be $16.00 per night for each campsite.  A self deposit vault will be located near the entrance to sites with directions explaining the process for paying your camping fee and to provide a payment tag for your campsite post.  Electricity will be available at these sites. Water and flush toilets will be 
available until early November.  After that the water will be shut off to winterize the facilities and 
porta potties will be available.  
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers understood the impacts these closures had on the public and opened the facilities as soon as possible while ensuring the areas were ready and safe for visitors. We appreciated the public's understanding and patience during the shutdown. Thank you.
