Letter from the Director of Parks and Recreation

In accordance with federal and state health and safety guidance, MID is taking temporary steps in support of efforts to reduce the potential spread of coronavirus. All camping and day-use facilities are temporarily closed at Lakes McClure and McSwain. This includes fishing and recreational boating. Full refunds will be automatically provided in the coming days and weeks to customers whose reservations have been canceled for camping or cabin rentals.

Please rest assured that we are doing everything possible to reopen recreational opportunities and will do so when it is safe and appropriate.

No other day-use or camping is available during this time and no new reservations will be taken during the temporary closure.
