Spring 2018 Update
Well we are starting to gear up for the upcoming season! So excited for warm weather, nice evenings and a lot of sunshine!!!! Dates have been set for our Annual Community Spring Clean Fling Satuday April 7 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., weather permiting.Those scout troups looking for a community service project are invited. We would love to see a super turn out, many hands make a large job so much faster and easier to accomplish. Bring your rakes, shovels, wheel barrels, weed eaters, wagons! We will supply the garbage bags and pick up what is gathered. Don't forget to mark you calendars and come out to help us!
It would be nice to see an organization put an Easter Egg hunt out here if they would like to. We have a nice area and lawn to be able to spread out for your littles to use, and possibly reduce some of the congestion for our other venues around having their Easter Egg hunts. Just throwing that out there if someone is looking for more space to use
The review for the grant will be in late March so it will be sometime in April that we will find out if ours has been approved. Cross your fingers and hopefully we will receive the best of news on our wall and new fire pits project!
JC Road and Bridge brought us more sand to spread around the lake so we can have more sandy beaches... All our cement RV pads have been poured and all 50 sites now have nice level cement to park on. This year our Indepencence Day June 30th will have more enertainment which will be out on the Island and we will have more minutes of fireworks all choreographed to music just tune into the radio station and enjoy! We keep working on improving and make our County Lake better every year! Looking forward to seeing all your happy faces
Jefferson County Parks and Recreation Department is funded by the user fees assessed at the Jefferson County Lake and Campground. Citizens of Jefferson County do not pay a tax levy to the Parks & Recreation Department. All proceeds go to improving and maintaining the lake as well as the Mike Walker boat ramp. We strive on keeping our rates low so that everyone can enjoy the lake.
The campground is open the middle of May to the end of September. The lake fills naturally and is normally full the first week of July. Electric and water hookups are at all 50 campsites and the three large shelters.
