ST. PETERS, Mo. — After almost two years of construction, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday to commemorate the opening of 370 Lakeside Park in St. Peters, which will offer 50 RV sites, biking and walking trails, boating and fishing, reports STLtoday.com.
Officials hope the RV park, with a fee of $35 per night, will be a steady source of revenue for the city. Several reservations have already been made.
“We’re real excited to be to this point,” said Jeff Hutsler, group manager for parks and recreation services. “It’s been a long time coming and it’s been a true city project. We’ve had to battle weather and the elements but are finally at the point where we can open this to the public.”

FRIES, Va. — A small camper was nearly washed away, and campers were left with quite a mess to clean up, after a flash flood hit the New River RV Park in Fries last Friday, reports WSLS.
“I waded through the water and found it very precariously balanced on a rock, where all the soil had washed away from it,” said owner Tim Bost.
Campground owner Tom Guy pushed a log into place to act as a barricade from the nearby stream in case of future flooding.
The park is back open for business.
