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.
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.
Expect the unexpected! Always practice safe hunting. Before you set foot in the field make sure you have all the proper safety equipment and double check to ensure it is in safe working order. When hunting from a tree stand you should always wear a harness and #stayconnected.
Lake Guard Mobile Game App Available On Apple App Store and Google Play App Store Lake Guard is a highly competitive game designed to test the player’s speed, reflexes and boating safety knowledge. You are tasked with guarding a lake that has been overrun with unprepared boaters. Take control of your trusty Safety Cannon to launch the necessary safety gear to them. However, you have to keep an eye out for cans of Grog (beer). Launching a can of Grog to a visitor could prove dangerous so be sure to shoot the cans of Grog onto the dock to be recycled instead! Keep guard of your lake for as long as you can while increasingly hazardous conditions and visitors try to overrun your waters. Share your high score with friends, earn achievements and become the greatest Lake Guard in the world!
Safety is for All Seasons. Check your local weather and lake conditions before you go. Always wear the proper safety equipment and make sure it works!
Spring is here! It is time again to remember water safety.
