Bass Lake Beach and Campground will soon close for the season. Manager Richard Callahan and his attorney Dave Wallsmith advised the Starke County Commissioners last night the group piers have been removed from the beach area and all but a few boats are out of the water. Wallsmith also told the commissioners he has not gotten any complaints about the amenities of late and has received complements about how nice and well maintained the facilities are.
He did ask the commissioners to be notified of park board meetings once those are set. That body will oversee the management of the beach and campground as well as the Starke County Forest and other public recreational lands owned by the county. The first meeting has not been scheduled yet, as member Marcia Bedrock is still trying to coordinate schedules and find a mutually convenient time for the five volunteer appointees to meet.
