Vicksburg, Miss –The Vicksburg District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) announces the re-opening of all Arkansas Corps lakes’ facilities.  These facilities were closed due to high water levels. This includes all campgrounds, boat ramps, recreational areas, and swim areas at DeGray Lake, Lake Greeson, and Lake Ouachita.

 

Although these facilities are now re-opened, boaters still need to use caution when boating and to always watch for debris washed into the lake from the recent heavy rains in the watershed area and let others know where you will be boating.  Always wear your lifejacket and keep the boat's "kill switch" attached at all times while underway. Swimmers are also reminded to wear a lifejacket and never swim alone. 

 

For more information, please contact the Arkansas lake offices at 501-767-2101.
