In an about-face, Gillespie Lake Superintendent Gary Thornhill announced the campground and shower house will not be able to open on May 1 despite previous announcements. The lake office remains open but the campground, shower house, beach, and pavilions remain closed until further notice.
“Sorry about all of the confusion with my earlier post but I was trying to get the information out as quick as I could so everyone could be informed,” Thornhill announced on Wednesday. “I received word this morning that due to an executive order, we will not be able to open the campground and bath/shower house this Friday, May 1.”
Thornhill said the lake is open for boaters and the lake office is open however only one customer can be inside the office at a time.
