US considers closing another Table Rock campground

GOLDEN, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is considering closing another campsite on Table Rock Lake.

The corps announced Monday that the Viney Creek Recreation Area near Golden, Mo. is targeted for closure.

Lake manager Greg Oller says federal funding for Table Rock was reduced $600,000 this year.

KOLR reports another problem for Viney Creek is that it doesn't have a commercial marina, although it does offer campsites, a playground area and swimming area.

Oller says boaters will have seven other nearby public areas to use to gain access to Table Rock Lake.
