ST. MARYS — Sunny skies and calm waters brought a slew of boaters and campers to Grand Lake St. Marys State Park for the holiday weekend.
“It was a good weekend,” Park Manager Brian Miller told The Evening Leader. “The campground was at 90 percent occupancy, which is the best we’ve seen since Memorial Day weekend. Boat traffic was well above what it was — we had people tubing, skiing and people using boaters’ beaches for swimming. There also was a lot of fishing, having picnics and people enjoying the area.”
