After record flooding, a southeast Arkansas lake park expects significant revenue loss.

DeGray Lake Resort Park had to close the park lodge and campgrounds last week as water levels rose to the highest point since 1982.

According to KARK, park officials say the park usually generates $300,000 during March.

However, park officials say the park will not make that much money this year and have already had to cancel sold out reservations and even a wedding.

Officials say that even though the water is slowly receding now, it will be a while before the park fully opens. 

Visitors should make alternate plans for spring break.
