The Tomlinson Run State Park campground remains open at a discounted rate while staff works to restore electrical service.
A power disruption has occurred in the campground at Tomlinson Run State Park near New Manchester in Hancock County, according to Park Superintendent Sam Morris. Electrical service to all other facilities at the park is not affected.
“A recent power surge has left the entire campground without electricity,’” Morris said. “Our engineering section from the central office is evaluating the problem and we hope to resolve the situation soon.”

“As compensation, campers will pay a special $15 per night rate, which will be in effect until power is restored,” Morris said. The normal rate for campsites with electricity is $24 per night.
