Kaw Lake Campsites Closed

AFter record lake levels and releases from Kaw Dam, Kaw Lake remains over 30 feet above normal.  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.  Lake Road from Ponca City to Kaw Dam is now open to traffic.  To be sure, check with the Kaw Lake Project Office for current information at 580-762-5611.
