Windstorm Wreaks Havoc at Heart o'the Hills
The windstorm of December 15 left the Heart O'the Hills campground strewn with fallen trees and debris. Fortunately, the restroom buildings were not hit, but several bulletin board kiosks and a woodshed were damaged or destroyed.
The campground is expected to reopen sometime this spring.
