EDMOND — Lake Arcadia has reopened after being closed for nearly three weeks because of high water.
The lake opened at 6 a.m. Wednesday. Some activities are still limited. Maintenance supervisor Leon Mixer said the lake is still about 31/2 feet above normal but is dropping slowly. The lake closed June 1 after heavy rains moved through the Oklahoma City area and dumped as much as 10 inches of water in some areas.
Mixer said power has been restored to campsites that have that service available. Some campsites remain damp and muddy, he said. All trails remain closed but should reopen over the next few days.
Boating and other water activities are also open to park users, but Mixer said those who venture out onto the water should use caution.
“I would stress there are some surface hazards like tree limbs and other things that can be dangerous,” he said. “We haven't had a lot of waves to push that stuff on to the shore. It's best to use a lot of caution and scope things out before they ski or do any fast boating.”
