Goose Creek State Park's group campsite, below, is closed until further notice as a well serving the site is replaced by county water lines, Park Superintendent John Fullwood said yesterday.
The state parks website has a simple alert saying the group campground, which is usually open from mid-March through late November, is closed until further notice.
Fullwood said the last quarterly test sample from the site's well came back positive for bacteria. "We are working to run county water to this area of the park to supply a safe water source, and hopefully it will be completed by early June," he said in an email.
The walk-in group site accommodates up to 30 people. Parking and flush toilets are across the street. Goose Creek also has 19 walk-in primitive camping sites for tents.
Goose Creek State Park is about 10 miles east of Washington off of U.S. 264 in Beaufort County.
