After getting off to a slow start in May, businesses in Fish Creek have a renewed sense of optimism for the rest of the tourist season. The beginning of the spring was hampered by cool weather and detours for road construction in Ephraim went around the community. Since June hit, businesses like Parkwood Lodge have had better than expected months. Owner Denise Stillman says even though Fish Creek will not be hosting a fireworks celebration this year for Independence Day, she believes there will still be plenty of things going on in the area.
Stillman added the excitement around an improved Fish Creek Beach has given visitors and residents something extra to talk about this season.
