Construction has started on the new pier at Whites Landing. The goal is to have the pier finished by the end of August. The barge arrived on Monday, June 15th and a construction zone has been established on either side of the old pier. The beach directly in front of Buffalo Beach is available for us to use. It might be a little noisy around camp for the next few months, but having a new pier at Buffalo Beach is going to be fantastic!
