Campground electricity restored at Tomlinson Run State Park

NEW MANCHESTER, West Virginia – Tomlinson Run State Park campground has electricity again. The power outage that occurred in mid-April has been resolved. Equipment and power lines repairs were completed June 22, according to Sam Morris, park superintendent.

"We appreciate the support and patience that our camping guests have exhibited as work progressed<' Morris said. "It is good to have understanding patrons. We look forward to great summer and fall camping conditions."

A power surge in mid-April left the entire campground without electricity, although power to all other facilities at Tomlinson Run State Park was not affected.  

The 54-site campground at Tomlinson Run features a convenience store, dump station, two bathhouses, hot showers and laundry facilities. All sites are suitable for tent or trailer and feature picnic tables and grills; while 39 sites feature electrical hookups. The campground opened April 1 and is open through October 31 each year. The park also has lake fishing, swimming with waterslide, canoe and kayaking, and hiking trails. Disc golf and camping attract vacationers that prefer outdoor settings and the creature comforts of a tent, yurt, camper cabin, or RV. 

Tomlinson Run State Park is located near New Manchester in Hancock County. Visit www.tomlinsonrunsp.com or call 304-564-3651.
