DEC to Temporarily Close Portion of Ausable Point Road

Culvert Repair Scheduled for May 2 and 3

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will close a portion of the Ausable Point Road, which provides access to the Ausable Marsh Wildlife Management Area and the Ausable Point Camp Campground, on May 2 and 3 while DEC repairs a culvert.

The culvert is located approximately 100 feet before the entrance booth for the campground. Visitors will not be able to access the unopened campground area during the closure.

Visitors will be able to access the launch site for small craft access to Lake Champlain, the accessible wildlife viewing platform, and the hand launch for paddlers into the Ausable Marsh - along with its parking area, during the road closure. Some equipment will be located in the parking area during the two-day replacement.

DEC's website has more information for people interested in visiting Ausable Marsh Wildlife Management Area and Ausable Point Campground.
