Nolin announces Family Camping Weekend

Staff Report

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Nolin River Lake announced on Wednesday, Sept. 21 that ‘Family Camping Weekend’ will be offered on Sept. 30 through Oct. 1, 2016.

On these two days, campers at Nolin River Lake who are camping with children in the party will receive half-off of the regular camping fee at Moutardier, and Dog Creek Campgrounds.

“Many children are losing their connection to the outdoors,” said Park Manager Deryck Rodgers, encouraging families to participate. “Studies show that children today spend half as much time outdoors as their parents did. Family Camping Weekend will give them a great opportunity to experience all that Nolin River Lake offers: camping, boating, swimming, hiking, biking, or one of the many other outdoor activities available.”

Walk-in campers with children in the party will pay half of the standard camping fee at Moutardier Campground.

Campers with children in the party who have reservations at Moutardier and Dog Creek Campgrounds will have half of their fees for these two nights refunded following their stay.

Dog Creek Campground only accepts payment through Reserve America after Sept. 5, 2016 and does not accommodate walk-in campers.

Campers using a discount card (Golden Age, Golden Access, or America the Beautiful Pass) will not receive an additional discount.

Family Camping Weekend at Nolin River Lake follows the federal government’s Great Outdoors Initiative, which encourages Americans to get outdoors and reconnect with the land. It also encourages Americans to work together to restore and protect America’s natural resources.

If you have any questions, please contact the Corps office at 270-286-4511 Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Central Standard Time.
