June clean business, state parkBy MELINDA WILLIAMS


For “setting a standard of excellence and pride” in the park’s appearance, Claytor Lake State Park has been selected as the recipient of the Clean Business Award for June.

The winner of the award, presented by Pulaski County Clean Community Council, is chosen from recommended recipients after review by council members. Chris Doss manages the park with a support staff of 30 people.

The state park includes a 4,500-acre lake for fishing, swimming and boating. There’s a swimming area with sandy beach, campground, hiking trails, picnic facilities, a full-service marina with boat slips and boat rentals, three lodges and 13 cabins. The Water’s Edge Meeting Facility is an ideal location for gatherings, including weddings, receptions or family reunions.

Those interested in area history and ecology should stop by the historic Howe House near the gazebo to check out the interactive exhibits.

The Clean Community Council meets the first Tuesday of each month. For more information, call Kim Wright at 980-7710.
