U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces campground and park closures

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

   The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Mobile is making preparations to close its campgrounds and day-use parks due to the federal government shutdown.

   Campers who are on site will be required to leave by no later than 3:00 p.m. October 2.  The Corps of Engineers says campers will receive a refund for any unused portion of their reservations.  Campers scheduled to arrive after October 1 may cancel their reservations for a full refund. 

   To request a refund the number to call is 1-888-448-1474.  The reservation service will automatically cancel reservations after a customer's scheduled departure date during the shutdown period if the park is closed and the customer chooses to do nothing.

   Lisa Parker, Deputy Public Affairs Officer of the Mobile District, said in a statement, "We know that this is a time of year when many vacationing families are using or planning to use USACE recreation facilities, and we will reopen them for public use as quickly as possible once the government shutdown is lifted."
