Panther State Forest Swimming Pool Opening Delayed

A circulation pump motor problem at the Panther State Forest swimming pool means the pool will not be able to open as scheduled Memorial Day weekend, according to Panther SF Asst. Supt. Mike Foster. A new pump motor has been ordered but it is not expected to arrive and be installed until sometime during the week of June 4, 2007.

Located in the rugged hills of McDowell County near West Virginia's southern border with Virginia and Kentucky, Panther State Forest offers a small campground in heavily wooded surroundings. Hiking trails to scenic overlooks, trout fishing, picnicking, swimming and hunting are featured at the forest.
