Sunshine Point Campground

Sunshine Point Campground and the main park road next to it washed away on Nov 6th. Before the flood, this section of the road felt secluded and dark in the old growth forest. As you can see, the view has significantly improved.

This aerial image clearly shows what was lost. Of the 18 campsites, 12 survived. The access road, parking and restrooms were destroyed.

This image was taken on Nov 7th. The power to Longmire was cut off when the road floated away.

Repairs were swift at Sunshine Point. The rush was on to restore the road and power to Longmire.

On Feb 1st, the first layer of pavement was put down on the road bed. They intend to finish the paving and painting in the spring.
