Around the Kansas City District

USACE reminds all visitors to follow these steps to recreate responsibly: honor the 6-foot social distance rule, stay away from parks and recreation areas if you are sick or have symptoms, keep parks clean by practicing “pack in and pack out” etiquette, and always wear a life jacket when near the water.
With limited staff and services likely in many parks & protected areas, trash & recycling receptacles may not be emptied as often as normal or at all. This can result in trash overflowing from receptacles which becomes litter & can harm wildlife. Instead, pack your trash & recyclables out with you all the way home & utilize your own receptacles.
As we implement a phased reopening of campsites and recreation areas closed due to COVID-19, a complete list of recreation area status updates can be found online at: www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/District-Lakes/Recreation-Area-Status.
To protect against the further spread of the Coronavirus all USACE-managed campgrounds have begun an orderly shutdown and will be closed indefinitely. Individuals with paid reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Do not attempt to contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.
The Kansas City District is currently supporting our State and Federal Partners in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our team is decisively engaged in the well-being of our workforce, their families, and the successful execution of our District's Mission Essential Tasks.
Follow CDC guidelines, even when outdoors. We are not staffed to maintain/clean lake & park areas. Be cautious about touching anything. Sanitize and wash often. Practice social distancing.
Contracting Guide to doing business with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
We are taking precautions and have closed our Visitor Center effective March 13, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide timely updates regarding other potential facility closures at our lakes on our websites and/or social sites.
When visiting a Corps lake always wear a life jacket and swim in designated swim areas.
