Lake Charles State Park, located on Highway 25 near Powhatan, has been closed for more than two months after it was decided the park was not safe due to damage caused by the Jan. 28 ice storm.

Many hours of work have resulted in the reopening of the park's campground areas today.

"At this time all other areas of the park remain closed to the public," Randall Watts, park superintendent, said.

He reported that the in-park boat ramp, fishing piers, pavilion, playground, picnic area and swim beach will re-open at a later date. Fishing piers and boat ramps are still available at the Highway 25 overlook.
