BULL SHOALS, AR (KAIT) -

No one will be pitching a tent this camping season at the River Run Park on Bull Shoals Lake.

The Army Corps of Engineers announced Tuesday that previous flooding damaged some infrastructure in the park.

The Corps says they must complete multiple repairs and projects, including repaving roads and upgrading electrical facilities, before it is safe for visitors.

Similar work will also need to be completed at Oakland Park on Bull Shoals Lake, delaying its opening until May 18.

The Corps asks visitors to not go into barricaded areas.

For more information, call the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 weekdays from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
