Some Kaw Lake Facilities Usable

After record lake levels and releases from Kaw Dam, Kaw Lake remains over 15 feet above normal.  As of 19 July, the following facilities are available for public use.  The following boat ramps are open - Bear Creek, McFadden Cove and Osage Cove High Water and Pioneer Park.  Camping is available at the following sites - Bear Creek South Loop, Sandy Park, Osage Cove B-Loop and Osage Cove Group Camping.  Public safety is of the utmost concern.  If you choose to boat on Kaw Lake, please exercise extreme caution.  Significant releases from Kaw Dam will make the area below the dam in the Arkansas River extremely dangerous. To be sure, check with the Kaw Lake Project Office for current information at 580-762-5611.
