Hundreds of campers were stranded at Wesleyan Woods Camp in Michigan over Memorial Day weekend. They were unable to exit the campground for almost 24 hours when flash flood waters washed out a culvert bridge on the only access road the on the morning of the 25th.
It was one of dozens of roadways that were left underwater across mid-Michigan counties after torrential downpours produced several inches of rain in less than 24-hours.
Once the high water had receded workers arrived Sunday morning carrying gravel to cover over the washed out culvert.
While campers waited for the bridge to be repaired, they joined together to provide food and water for one another.
Many campers said the closed bridge did not dampen their Memorial Day weekend.
