Corps delays opening of Ashtabula campground due to weather

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District
Published April 19, 2022

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, will delay the opening of campground facilities at Lake Ashtabula due to snowpack into late April and continued cold weather forecasts for the next 10 days.

Campgrounds were scheduled to open May 1, but snowpack is preventing access to most of the camping facilities. Campgrounds affected include East Ashtabula Crossing, West Ashtabula Crossing, Eggert’s Landing and Mel Rieman Recreation Area.

The Corps’ current plan is to open these facilities on May 12, but that date may change depending on future weather conditions. 

For further information on the camping/recreation situation at Lake Ashtabula please contact the Lake Ashtabula recreation office at (701) 845-2970.

The Corps of Engineers is the nation’s leading federal providers of outdoor recreation. The St. Paul District operates 49 recreation areas, ranging from public boat landings along the Mississippi River to visitor centers at our locks to full-service campgrounds.
