COLUMBUS, OH—In an effort to off-set lost revenues of local businesses and individuals, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is offering deep discounts on camping and shelter house rentals at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park.
Campsite fees and shelter house rentals at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park are being discounted by 50 percent. Discounts will be offered until December 31, 2010. For existing reservations, discounts will be applied at the time of arrival.
“Discounting ODNR services may be unprecedented, but the problem at Grand Lake St Marys is also unprecedented. We are taking the steps we can to attract visitors, and these camping and shelter house discounts are one way to help.” said ODNR Director Sean Logan. “Every dollar spent at the state park by each visitor brings benefits that reach far beyond our own marinas and other facilities.
