If you’re still interested in sinking an anchor in Proctor Lake over Labor Day weekend - you can do it!
According to Park Ranger Tim Musick, the boat ramp at Highpoint Park is open and so are the two county boat accesses at Foley’s Addition and Buffalo Springs.
Volunteers have worked for two weeks and have 20 campsites ready at Sowell Creek Park that can be reserved on a first come, first served basis.
“They have done a heck of a job,” Musick said.
Musick said the park depends on volunteers because, “It’s about the only way we can get stuff done due to budget constraints.”
Musick said volunteers receive a full-service hook up campsite free of charge in return for 24 hours of work per week.
“I’ve been borrowing equipment and buying a lot of sodas out of my own pocket for the volunteers,” Musick said.
Musick said the debris has dispersed, and as long as boaters follow the rules of 50 feet away from the banks anyone skiing should be able to do so safely.
Anyone interested in volunteering should call Musick at 254-879-2424.
