Earlier this year, the army corp budget was slashed by half a million dollars. KEPR was told the areas weren't getting enough visitors to support the maintenance costs. Boat launches will still be available, but outdoor lovers don't like the idea of the closures.
One visitor explains, "I don't think i'd be a good idea, I've never really been out here before and it's an awesome place to be. The campground looks like it'd be fun."
This is yet another example of park areas being closed because of budget cuts.
