Some of you have asked, "what was the highest the lake ever reached?" On April 14th, 1964 the lake level reached 1077.15', over a foot-and-a-half higher than what it reached this winter. The last time we were above 1075' was on March 19th, 1990. Lake levels have been falling at a rough average of 2-3 inches a day, currently showing 1074.54'.

The Lake Level is now at 1075 - slowing receding. Hopefully the boat apron will be cleaned up soon and access to the docks restored. Are you ready to paddle? ... See MoreSee Less
