After about two weeks of cleaning up and repairing damage from a devastating storm, Lake Pueblo State Park's North Shore Marina and boat ramp will reopen Friday.

A storm that moved through the area March 23-24 caused about $320,000 worth of damage to Colorado Parks and Wildlife-operated facilities in the park, according to a news release. Major damage was to 65 shade shelters in campgrounds, a shop compound fence, downed trees and signs throughout the park.

At the marinas, millions of dollars in damage to private property was reported.

On April 14, campgrounds will reopen with upgraded electrical infrastructure, according to the release. Each of the park's 281 electrical campsites will have 20/30/50 amp service, but 119 primitive campsites will remain without power.

The status of the park's campgrounds:

- Juniper Breaks is open

- Arkansas Point is closed - Loop A will open April 14, and the rest of the campground will open May 15

- Northern Plains' Prairie Ridge, Yucca Flats and Kettle Creek sites will open April 14, but Eagle View is open
