MONDAY. AFTERNOON, AUGUST 12. 1963 THE NORTH ADAMS. MASSACHUSETTS. TRANSCRIPT SEVEN Campers KeepClarksburg State Park Tent and Trailer_Sites_Busy Area Wins Praise of Most Users Clarksburg State Park has been popular with campers since it opened -facilities for them four years ago. It has 48 camp sites for tents or trailers and is generally full on weekends. Occasionally there have been more campers than camp sites. No Showers Most people shower the park with compliments but showers are one area in which it draws a sprinkling of complaints. There are none. Showers are becoming more popular in parks around the country and a number — including the new area in Savoy Stale Forest — have hot and cold running water. A minor complaint has been the ban of cals. While dogs are allowed, Park Supervisor James A. Slanhopc explains that officials are afraid cats and kiltens would be cast off by vacationers. Wild and multiplying, they would pray on birds. Mr. Slanhope expects the park will eventually be equipped with showers, flush toilels and niceties being adopted in the newer camps, niceties that make camp' ing out less like camping out, Need More Sand The beach for vacationers could use more sand, he comments, and « lifeguard there would be desirable. (A boy almost drowned at the campers' beach several years ago.) Clarksburg Slate Park was purchased by the stale in 1954 from George B. Flood of North Adams for $20,500. Mr. Flood, who later died, used the 3G4 acre tract for a private beach club. Before Mr. Flood bought it 27 years earlier for the same price lie sold it, the land was owned by Mausert's Ice Co. Mausert's Pond on the property was used for the business's ice supply.
