Lake Snowden to reopen
(2008-04-02)
(WOUB) - Campers -- grab your sleeping bags.

After almost two years, Lake Snowden is officially open for business again.

Campsite vacancies at the Athens County recreation spot are already filling up.

Hocking College owns Lake Snowden and almost two years ago cut back usage and prohibited camping as a cost-saving measure.

After much public criticism, School of Natural Resources Dean Larry Coon came up with a plan to re-open.

Park employees say they plan to have the beach ready by May 31.
