Damage from winter storms has closed the boat rental facility at Morrow Mountain State Park for the rest of the year, park officials say.
Rentals of boats and canoes at the state park in Stanly County will not be available until 2011. Severe shoreline erosion – the result of winter storms and flooding on Lake Tillery – has damaged the park’s boathouse.
In addition, much of the nearby Fall Mountain Trail is closed because of erosion damage, park officials say. There is no word as to when that might be reopened.
The boathouse will be replaced, but it will be next year before it is finished.
