Kaw Lake Campsites Closed

Almost all campgrounds at Kaw Lake will be closed due to extremely high lake levels until further notice.  Only Bear Creek and Sandy Park are open and available for camping.    This information is due to change without notice.  Significant releases from Kaw Dam will make the area below the dam in the Arkansas River extremely dangerous.  With the high lake levels, all water related activities on Kaw Lake are discouraged at this time.  To be sure, check with the Kaw Lake Project Office for current information at 580-762-5611.
