‘It’s business as usual’ for Lakeport campground, businesses amid boil order

Ongoing water issues in Burtchville Township may not be plaguing visitors checking out nearby businesses and the local campground as residents headed into the fifth day under a boil water order Wednesday.

“We normally bring our own drinking water anyway, so for us it was OK,” said camper Judy Dennis, referring to five two-gallon water jugs.

Visiting from Bloomfield Township, she was among the visitors hanging out at the Lakeport State Park campground, where unit supervisor Mark Sine said he didn’t expect the boil advisory still in effect for seven communities in four counties, including Burtchville, to deter many registered campers this coming weekend.

Although visitors were starting to taper off with the final days of summer, Sine said they’re still seeing plenty of people taking advantage of the campground off M-25 with 150 sites occupied about every day and the campground’s 250 camps and three cabins reaching capacity on the weekend.
