HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Sutton Lake is reopening a campground closed by recent high water.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says the Gerald R. Freeman Campground will reopen on Thursday. But some campsites won’t be available because some areas remain covered in mud.

The corps temporarily closed some campgrounds and recreation areas after recent heavy rainfall raised the lake above its normal summer pool elevation.

The corps says the West Virginia Division of Highways is repairing a county road to Bakers Run Campground that sustained significant damage. It’s not known when the road will reopen.

The Bee Run Day Use Area is open.
