Oakland City campground rates will see an increase

Posted: Updated:

Rates are going up at the Oakland City New Lake campground.  

The Campground Manager Charles Cissna says the price increase in camping prices will improve the campgrounds.  

Nightly rates will go up $3-$5 based on location. Monthly rates will increase from $300 to $400 in the winter months (December through March).  

Cissna says the money will be put towards another bathroom, showers, and even a sewer system.  

"I get a lot of people call and ask if we have sewer or showers and they want that and a lot of other places do have that, of course their prices are a litter higher but that's a convenience that people often want," said Cissna.

Cissna says the new additions will not be added for at least another two years.
