Caney Creek Camping Loops Open

The camp sites at Caney Creek have been closed since Rita hit three years ago, until now.

It's been an extensive clean-up project, removing timber and debris and getting the camping loops back to working order.

"We'd have liked for it to have been open in 6 months, but it just wasn't possible, especially when you're dealing with contracts and public money, but we're trying to do the best we can with it," says District Ranger Eddie Gray.

Camping cost $3 a night and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

RV's are welcome, but there are no hookups available.

The boat ramp at Caney Creek is also open as well.
