The Black River Harbor Campground remains closed until test results show the water is safe for campers.

IRONWOOD TOWNSHIP — Black River Harbor Campground is not yet open, pending water testing results, said Lisa Klaus, public affairs officer for the Ottawa National Forest.

Water at the campground is being tested “to make sure water systems are operating at full efficiency,” said Klaus.

Test results are expected back within days.

An underground waterline had broken, and needed repair so that campers could have potable water.

If test results come back clean, the campground could be open as early as this weekend, said Klaus.
