    Helms Landing

    Last I heard (on this board) there was a huge sink hole in the middle of the access road to the ramp at Helms. Has anyone been down there lately? Is the hole still there or has it been fixed? Can you drive around it or is the ramp effectively closed to boats and trailers? With the river level starting to drop, I'd like to get down there in the next week or two but would go somewhere else on the river if Helms is closed. Thanks for any help.

    I would be AMAZED if it was fixed already......my guess would be around 2012, but the world is going to end then anyways.

    Anybody know?

    There's a campground that overlooks the Helms Landing Road. I bet the owners know what's happening with that road. Anyone know the name of that campground? I could give them a call.

    "Riverside" ask for Paula, 270 343 3777 (day) 270 343 3775 (night).. You may have to call in the evening. This info was current as of last year when we tried to make arrangements to stay there.

    Called the daytime number during the day and the night-time number at night. Couldn't speak to a live person either time. Maybe someone else will have better luck.
