Recreational vehicles already lined the north beaches of Enders Reservoir as of Tuesday afternoon. According to Beau Licking, Park Superintendent, there were 30 campers at the State Recreation Area as of Tuesday. If Tuesday’s traffic is any indication, it looks like the weekend will be busy. He reminds campers fireworks are not allowed at Enders, to be careful with fire due to the dry conditions and to be courteous to their neighbors during the busy weekend.
