A five-month construction project at Nevada’s Lake Mead National Recreation Area campground is set to begin this week.

As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Boulder Beach Campground will undergo more than $3 million in improvements through the end of April, according to the National Park Service. The work will include restorations and repairs to at least 73 campsites, roads, and sanitation and potable water refill stations. Shaded structures also will be added throughout.

In the northwest section of the campground, the sites will be regraded and replaced with concrete to accommodate modern-sized RVs and to make picnic tables, fire rings and grills fully accessible.

“We made similar improvements to Loops A, B and C in 2013,” Lizette Richardson, a spokeswoman for the recreation area, said in a statement. “We are pleased to be able to complete the Boulder Beach campground rehabilitation. These are your fee dollars at work.”
