DeGray Lake to Update Master Plan for Land Use Management

Published April 2, 2019

VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District’s DeGray Lake Field Office is beginning the process of updating its 1973 Master Plan for land use management.

The Master Plan was designed to provide guidance for the orderly development, administration, maintenance, preservation, enhancement and management of all natural, cultural and recreational resources of a USACE water resource project. The plan does not include any water management operations associated with USACE facilities, such as the dam or spillway.

Public input is critical in the Master Plan update process, and for that purpose, a questionnaire is available at the following link:

The DeGray Lake Field Office will host public engagements regarding the Master Plan at a later date.

DeGray Lake is a flood control reservoir and recreational facility located on the Caddo River and nestled in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains near Arkadelphia, Arkansas. The lake has 208 miles of shoreline and covers approximately 13,800 acres. For more information regarding DeGray Lake, visit
