Those sites are:
-Pettit Bay I - Boat Ramp

-Cookson Bend Public Use Area - Lower loop sites 29 - 50 and Boat Ramp in Area I
-Chicken Creek - Lower area of the First-come-First Served sites

-The lower road in Cookson Area II by the boat ramp is closed but the ramp is still open.

Those who have a camping reservation that is affected will be given a full refund, which can take 4-6 weeks to process. Please be patient as rangers and staff are performing flood duties.
The corps asks users to please use caution if you must get out on the lakes as numerous hazards may be just below the surface of the water.
