Arcadia Lake Closed Indefinitely Due to Flooding

Arcadia Lake Flooding

All public access parks at Arcadia Lake are closed due to flooding from recent heavy rainfall and the ensuing runoff.  This closure includes Central State Park, Edmond Park, Scissortail Campground, Carl Reherman Park and Spring Creek Park.  Additionally, the Spring Creek Trail is also closed due to high water in multiple areas.  

As of early Tuesday afternoon, the lake elevation was still rising over 1018 feet which is 12 feet above normal water elevation.   The result is flooding of roadways, campsites and making docks inaccessible.  Officials will continue to monitor the lake levels to make decisions about reopening the parks once waters recede and cleanup efforts have been completed.

It is anticipated that these closures will last a minimum of two weeks, but there is no current timetable for reopening and updates will be sent out when available.  To view current lake levels, visit the Army Corps of Engineers Arcadia Lake page at http://www.swt-wc.usace.army.mil/ARCA.lakepage.html.
