All campgrounds opened in Ward Lake Recreation Area
August 29, 2017
(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The Ketchikan Misty Fiords District Ranger, Susan Howle, has re-opened the Signal Creek Campground in the Ward Lake Recreation Area after a recent inspection. Since the rain has subsided, the lake levels have returned to normal at Ward Lake. The announcement was made Monday.
The inspection revealed minimal erosion damage to trails in the Ward Lake area and the footbridge near the day-use area shelters was lifted off of its foundation. While the bridge is misaligned, it appears stable and the District is planning to repair it later this week.
The public is encouraged to exercise caution on trails and bridges, and to report any damage to the Ketchikan Misty Fiords Ranger District to ensure prompt action to preserve public safety.
The Ketchikan Misty Fiords District will continue to monitor conditions and make repairs as necessary.
