DURANT, Okla. - Some campsites at Lake Texoma are still in need of repair from last years floods. Durant Chamber of Commerce Director Janet Reed says the Army Corps of Engineers is waiting to see how much funding will come in before repairs are made. The money is needed to fix plumbing and electrical wires and to buy materials to rebuild what was damaged.

Reed says once that happens, they will need volunteers to come out and help finish the job.

Reed says they want the campsites to be finished soon, because of the economic impact campers have on the area.

"There are several campsites not open and realistically, they may not open. But we are working to get as many opened for the public as possible for spring and summer," Reed says.

Skilled professionals will also be needed to volunteer their time, like running plumbing and electrical wires, in order to have campgrounds ready for visitors.
