MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - Repairs to Percy Quin State Park are complete four years after Hurricane Isaac ruined a dam there.

Park administrator Will Busby tells the Enterprise-Journal (https://bit.ly/2c2OR03 ) that fishing will resume with a youth day on Sept. 17, and reopen to the general public on Sept. 21.

The final step was the construction of a new bridge over the auxiliary spillway. Busby says that was finished last week and is now open. The long-closed primitive campground on the west side of the lake is reopening this weekend.

Busby says he expects 200 to 400 boats that day, saying the park’s hotel and cabins are booked, with only a few campsites available.

Park employees have hauled steel gates behind barges to remove unwanted grass that grew in the lake while it was dry.
