VICKSBURG, Miss. – In advance of the upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, Lake Ouachita, Lake Greeson and DeGray Lake are expecting HIGH visitation. Facilities will be impacted with full parking lots in the campgrounds, boat rams and day use parking lots. We are urging visitors coming to any of these lakes to carpool and minimize multiple vehicles per party.

Entrances to certain recreation areas will be restricted by barricades by the monitoring Rangers once a recreation area is deemed FULL. Emergency services personnel will be the only vehicular traffic allowed in once an area is barricaded. Outgoing traffic from the areas will not be impacted, but you may not be able to 
reenter until after the event as traffic subsides. 

Hours of traffic impacts are expected between 7 AM - 7 PM on APRIL 8th, 2024. For further information, you may call the Field Office at Lake Ouachita at 501-767-2101, Lake Greeson at 870-285-2151 and DeGray Lake at 870-246-5501.
