Take your credit card to Arbuckle Lake
Fee machines at the Guy Sandy and Buckhorn boat ramps on Arbuckle Lake now only accept credit cards.
All boat ramp and campground fee machines at the lake will be replaced or modified to accept credit cards only in the near future.
Chickasaw National Recreation Area officials say the credit card machines are more reliable and will deter vandalism and theft.
Cards such as pre-paid Visa cards also can be used, said Dan Winings of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
