GOLDEN, Mo. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announce it will not open Viney Creek Campground on Table Rock this year.

Presiding Commissioner for Barry County, Cherry Warren says the Corps will look to lease the property after May 1:

Cherry Warren H440 (:23) “...forward with us.”

Commissioner Warren says Native American Tribes get first priority if interested in the camp ground, then the federal government and state government receive priority before the county.

Warren went on to say he does not believe any tribe or the federal government will pursue the site, and remains optimistic the county will be able to lease the camp ground.
