Campers looking to get a jump on the season got some good news Friday, May 4, as George Lane Park has opened their gates two weeks earlier than expected.

With the late spring this year the expected opening date was set for Tuesday May 15, the campground usually opens May 1.

Lions Director Tom Carson says the gates will be open Friday.

"We are very excited about it, it is two weeks earlier than we thought it would be," said Carson.

First of all the Town had to trim and remove some trees.

"Luckily the weather was good so we got that finished and the weather again helped us to get rid of snow accumulation from over the winter."

Carson says the water is on, the washrooms are opened up and the showers are ready to go.

"Everything is ready to go."
