Holiday makers who visit Greens Lake are by and large a responsible bunch, according to Corop's General Store owners.ELAINE COONEY January 17, 2014 4:11am
While reports of violence and rubbish dumping at Greens Lake hit the headlines last week it is still one of Corop’s tourist gems.
The locals take great pride in maintaining their main attraction.
Corop General Store owners Haylee Chisholm and Denielle Sarson said most holiday makers who visited the lake were well behaved and brought their rubbish home.
‘‘It was just one group walking around that were causing trouble and they were not locals,’’ Mrs Chisholm said.
‘‘(New Year’s Eve) was a good night. The kids had a ball. The adults had a ball.’’
Mrs Chisholm’s husband, Jason, frequently collects large drums of cans from the lake which are recycled with donations going towards Corop CFA.
Mrs Sarson’s husband, Robert Sarson, slashed the grass at the lake in December to eliminate a fire risk.
Mrs Sarson said while some rubbish was left behind by campers over the New Year period, she felt extra bins at the lake could minimise the problem.
Mrs Chisholm, who is also a firefighter, said she was pleased there were not any call-outs to the lake this year and said fires at the site were not common.
