Kayak Zak’s and Humboldt State University recreation students plan a “Benefit to Reopen Dry Lagoon Campground” event on Saturday (Nov. 1) at the Trinidad (Calif.) Town Hall, the Eureka Times-Standard reported.

According to HSU student Maria Morales, Dry Lagoon is “Humboldt’s favorite hike-in campground.” It has been closed for almost three years because of state budget cuts. It’s a primitive hike-in campground.

“We are trying to raise money for State Parks to reopen it in spring of 2015,” said Morales in an e-mail. “The campground needs new picnic tables, bear boxes, fire rings, and trail maintenance. Last year, with our grassroots collaborative effort, the community raised the money to reopen the Stone Lagoon boat-in campground at Ryan’s Cove, and families have enjoyed it all summer!”
