Bass Lake Beach and Campground Set to Open for Season


The manager of Bass Lake Beach and Campground assures the Starke County Commissioners the amenities will be ready for business over the Memorial Day weekend.

Richard Callahan and his attorney Dave Wallsmith provided the first of what will be monthly status reports for the properties during last night’s commissioners meeting. Wallsmith says a car hit the fence on the campground side, and the weight of snow tossed by plow trucks damaged the fence on the beach side. Both will need to be replaced with materials that meet current code standards.

He also advised the commissioners that repairs are being made to the water and sewage systems this week, and the bills will be submitted to the county for credit against the management lease. Meanwhile, mowing will also be done this week to get ready for the anticipated seasonal influx.

The commissioners also clarified that they will notify Wallsmith of any concerns or complaints that they receive about the beach or campground so he can contact Callahan immediately and see that they are resolved. The monthly management reports will be presented at the evening meeting on the third Monday of each month.

The next is Monday, June 16.
