The Red Barn Campground on CTH B, Shell Lake, had four or five campers that were destroyed from the storm that passed through the area on Sunday, June 11. Dotty Swan credits the limited damage to most weekend campers left due to the forecast. It appears that the Red Barn’s buildings are OK. After 35 years of operating the campground, Dotty said they have always been thankful they hadn’t been hit by a storm. This was their first. –Photo by Dan Brereton
