Due to new toilets at La Panza Campground. Excavation work will begin 11/14 for La Panza Campground. They will take approximately 3 weeks for the decommissioning and installation of the toilet buildings. The cement work will take another week once they are installed. So we are looking at approximately 4 weeks total.  The campground is closed until the construction is completed. Once I get a firm date for completion,  we will update here. (updated 11/13)
