WATERTOWN, S.D.–An outdoor event space on Lake Kampeska will need to come into compliance with a few city requests in order to remain open.

Curly’s, near Stony Point, has been hosting concerts and fundraisers this summer.

Today, Curly’s posted on their Facebook page that they are, “closed until further notice,” and are asking people to, “stay away from the site as it does not meet city standards for occupancy.”

City Manager Amanda Mack (pictured) tells KWAT News that Watertown’s Engineering, Community Development and Building Services Departments have all been working with the owners of Curley’s for several weeks on coming into compliance with a few issues–namely their parking lot and driveway surfaces, which will need either crushed concrete or recycled asphalt to be laid down, and a permanent railing along the seawall that will need to be installed…

Mack says there are no compliance issues with the campground at Curly’s.

In their social media post today, Curly’s writes, “we will remember the early days as some of the best.”
