May 24th is here
May 19, 2001
{Author: eBerg Staff}

The summer trout-fishing season opened Tuesday, May 15th, followed by five provincial parks opening their gates on Wednesday, May 16th. As usual, this comes just in time to accommodate those Newfoundlanders who love to rough it in the wilderness, camping and fishing for the Victoria Day long weekend (better know by most as May 24).

The five parks that are scheduled to open for the weekend are Barachois Pond, Butterpot, Frenchman's Cove, La Manche and Notre Dame. Lockston Path park (near Port Rexton) has delayed its opening due to snow accumulation as they are still suffering from Mother Nature's firm grip she held on us this winter. Camping fees will, for the most part, remain the same as 2000 fees, with the exception of a few minor adjustments to seasonal camping fees.

Unfortunately for those of us who love to go shower-less while surviving on a wiener and marsh-mellow diet for three days, are going to require oil skins and a tarpaulin for this year's May 24. One of our own here at eBerg will be venturing out into the cold flurry filled weather for a three-day camping excursion, and will have more to report next week. Happy camping!
