LNSP Update
My name is Casey Rhinehart and I'm the ranger at Lake Norman State Park overseeing the construction/maintennace of the Itusi Trail. Park staff and trail volunteers were concerned about folks driving all the way up from Charlotte and discovering that the trail is closed, so I wanted to advise you of the closure policy and how to learn about the trail's status.

Park staff will close the trail when the following conditions exist: excessively wet trail, misuse of trail, storm damage and poor maintenance. Obviously, wet trails will result in the most closures.

Trail closure and subsequent openings will be posted to the following web site by park staff: You may also call the park office at (704) 528-6350. We will try to leave a message on the answering machine for evening hours.

I would like to clarify one point concerning the showers at the swimming area bathhouse. Showers are cold water only and their availability is limited: they'll only be open when park staff are manning the boat rentals, which is going to be weekends only very soon as kids return to school. The showers will not be available at all after Labor Day. Showers in the family campground are for registered campers only.

Thanks for all of your support on this project and I hope you'll come back for another workday this Fall/Winter.
