Forest Service to Hold Virtual Meetings for Lake Sherwood Rehabilitation Projects

Contact(s): Kelly Bridges


White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., April 9, 2021 – The public is invited to participate in one of two virtual meetings, April 13, 6-7:30 p.m. and April 15, 6-7:30 p.m., related to rehabilitation projects at the Lake Sherwood Campground on Monongahela National Forest’s Marlinton-White Sulphur Ranger District. Each meeting will include the same information.

As a result of funding from the Great American Outdoors Act, Lake Sherwood Campground will be renovated by replacing several old toilet/shower wooden buildings with new accessible concrete structures, demolishing old vault toilets, repairing utility lines, replacing sewer infrastructure, reconstructing the amphitheater, and installing new traffic signs.

“We would like to take this opportunity to begin an ongoing conversation with the public about Lake Sherwood and how we can improve the visitor experience there,” said District Ranger Cynthia Sandeno. “During the meetings, we will share information about the work that is already planned at the lake for this year, but we would also like to hear suggestions from those who love Lake Sherwood about what they want us to focus on for fiscal year 2022.”

During the virtual meetings, Forest staff will present information about current projects at Lake Sherwood, projects planned for the rest of 2021, and potential projects for 2022. The public is encouraged to submit comments, questions and suggestions ahead of time by emailing sm.fs.lakesherwood@usda.gov.

Instructions for joining the meetings via computer or telephone are available on the Forest’s public website at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mnf/landmanagement/planning/?cid=FSEPRD898980
