Corps Warns of "High Water" Dangers at Greers Ferry Lake

HEBER SPRINGS, AR - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is urging all visitors to Greers Ferry Lake to exercise extreme caution, as high water conditions mean objects normally well above the lake level are now submerged and difficult to see.  Also, campers, swimmers and boaters visiting park areas should be aware that certain areas may be closed to the public for their safety and protection.

Because of the high lake level, approximately 25 percent of the lake's campsites are not usable at this time.  All of the campgrounds except Cove Creek Park will be open to the public with limited camping opportunities.  Cove Creek will remain closed until the lake recedes and clean-up and repair of the campground's facilities can be accomplished.  Visitors are reminded to observe the "Closed Area" signs and barricades.

Boaters are also advised to avoid the following barricaded boat ramps for safety reasons until the water recedes: Shiloh Park, Narrows Park, Cherokee Park, Cove Creek Park and Mill Creek Park.
