Main ac­cess area for Lake Wylie clos­ing for 3 days for up­dates

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Local - BY JOHN MARKS [email protected]­al­don­

Lake Wylie’s main pub­lic ac­cess is clos­ing for im­prove­ments.

York County tweeted Thurs­day the three-day clo­sure at Buster Boyd Ac­cess Area begins May 6. Park­ing lot lines are be­ing re­painted. And re­strooms are be­ing in­stalled.

Buster Boyd an­nu­ally is one of the most used boat ac­cess ramps. Along with typ­i­cal boat­ing use, it rou­tinely serves as a gath­er­ing spot for fish­ing tour­na­ments and pub­lic events. Ac­tiv­ity typ­i­cally height­ens at Buster Boyd start­ing on Thurs­days, in­clud­ing Thurs­day night fish­ing tour­na­ments hosted on Wylie through­out much of the year.

The new park­ing paint is the lat­est in a se­ries of area im­prove­ments. In April, Duke En­ergy an­nounced the ac­cess area would close three days in early May for the ad­di­tion of a re­stroom.

“A re­stroom fa­cil­ity is the No. 1 re­quest of vis­i­tors us­ing the Buster Boyd Ac­cess Area, and we are glad to pro­vide it to en­hance recre­ation­ists’ ex­pe­ri­ence on Lake Wylie,” John Crutch­field with Duke said at the time.

The area also has a new restau­rant with the re­cent open­ing of Papa Doc’s Shore Club. Papa Doc’s re­placed T-Bones on the Lake, which closed af­ter a 24-year run as Lake Wylie’s water­front gath­er­ing spot. Papa Doc’s and the ac­cess area have ad­join­ing and of­ten shared park­ing.

Buster Boyd park­ing should re­open with the im­prove­ments on May 9.
