Thursday's Update: Campsites in Good Shape Despite Muddy Roadways

Here's a brief update from around the grounds as of 4:30 p.m. CDT Thursday:
  • Grass roadways in Camp Scholler (primarily the numbered streets and Cedar Ave.) as well as the parking lots are a quagmire following yesterday's and today's early morning showers. More rain is forecasted Thursday evening.
  • Campsites, however, look to be in good shape for the most part since many campers were already in place and haven't moved about on the muddy roadways.
  • If you're in Camp Scholler, try to avoid these affected roadways if you can, both with vehicle and foot traffic.
  • Crews worked overnight and during the day on filling damaged site areas in with stones or wood chips, most notably in high traffic areas like exhibit areas, shuttle bus stops, and near bathrooms and shower houses. We will continue to monitor and treat trouble spots as needed.
  • Some turf areas usually used for aircraft taxiing are coned off and alternate taxiing routes marked. As always, pilots should use extra caution when taxiing off of paved surfaces.
  • As of 3:45 p.m., the GA Camping Area is approximately 80% full and the GA Parking Area is approximately 70% full. Both of these areas are only able to accommodate single-engine aircraft. Non-showplane twin-engine aircraft must seek accommodations at the FBOs.
Keep checking back on the Aircraft Parking Status page for more information.
