LURAY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Visitors to the Shenandoah National Park may have to change their camping plans this year.

The Virginia Department of Health has identified issues with the raw water source at two of the park’s public facilities.

According to a release, Dundo and South River have not had potable water for several years due to deficiencies found during required testing.

The park left the spigots in place with signs alerting visitors that the water was not safe to drink so that campers would still be able to extinguish campfires.

However, VDH has now informed park officials that water that is not potable cannot be provided to visitors even with signage.

Due to this, group camping is no longer available at Dundo, which is located at mile 83.7 on Skyline Drive.

To accommodate groups, group sites have been added to the Loft Mountain Campground at mile 79.5.

At Dundo, the picnic grounds will still be open, but because there will no longer be water available, no fires of any kind are allowed. This includes charcoal fires.

The South River Picnic Grounds will also remain open but the same fire restriction is in place there.

For the 2024 season, the campgrounds at Loft Mountain, Big Meadows and Mathews Arm will have reservable group sites. Reservation can be made online here.

Both Dundo and South River offer vault toilets.
