(FARMLAND) - A central Indiana campground that's been operating for more than a century is closing its gates amid a state lawsuit.

State health officials are suing the Three Waters Campground in the Randolph County town of Farmland over alleged health and safety violations, including standing water that served as mosquito breeding sites.

Campground owner Richard Waters tells The (Muncie) Star Press that "state inspectors have run me out of business."

The campground near Muncie has been a recreation site along the White River for 115 years. The site includes a fishing pond, an office and about three dozen wooded campsites.

State Department of Health spokesman Ken Severson says the department never ordered the campground to close. He says that decision was "made solely by the owner."
