KNOXVILLE — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District will close the North Overlook Campground at Lake Red Rock from May 16 to Aug. 31, 2021.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers made the announcement Wednesday in order to inform those who may be planning 2021 camping trips.

During the planned closure, a construction project will replace outdated restroom facilities. Full closure of the campground is necessary due to it only having one shower house and no other facilities for campers to use during construction. The new facility will feature six unisex private entry rooms and be similar to the shower house recently installed at the North Overlook beach.

For more information, please contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Lake Red Rock office at 641-828-7522.
