Galveston Texas — After rebounding from nearly $6 million in damage from Hurricane Ike, Dellanera RV Park has reopened.

The West End RV park reopened to beach visitors on June 18, just in time to welcome tourists for the Fourth of July weekend.

Dellanera Park, FM 3005 at 7 Mile Road, opened in the 1980s with 84 camp sites. Erosion and Hurricane Ike chewed away at the beach, reducing the number of camp sites to about 65. Repairs to the park, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, started about eight months ago.

The park offers spaces for pull- through campers between 50 to 60 feet, slips for 30- and 40-foot campers and also dry camping, which means no available water or other amenities. Day parking is also available at the park.

Amenities include umbrella and chair rentals, picnic sites, showers and, eventually, wireless Internet.

Floodwaters ravaged Land Between the Lakes. As Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley rose, water took over popular recreation areas and washed away campsites.

Most of LBL has been shutdown for the last few weeks. People have been working non-stop to try to get things back to normal to keep a Memorial Day camping tradition alive.

Hillman Ferry Campground manager Tim Vetter said when the water was at its highest, nearly 160 sites were underwater.He has been focused the last few days on restoring camp sites in time for one of their busiest weekends.

“Memorial Day through Labor Day is our peak season,” Vetter said. “We’re going to scramble to get what we can open for that weekend.”
So they work to get rock replaced and debris moved, to keep the tradition of camping during Memorial Day weekend alive.

Land Between the Lakes plans to reopen the majority of its recreation sites Friday.

Officials there warn there are some areas still affected by the flooding. They’re asking people to obey any barricades and always think safety first.
