UPDATE (June 24, 1:30 p.m.): The Twin Coves Park boat ramp will reopen at 3 p.m. on June 24. The boat ramp has been closed since the beginning of June due to excessive rainfall and rising lake levels. Please note, the lake level is still higher than usual, so the kayak launch will remain closed at this time, and guests should exercise caution while using the boat ramp.

As a reminder, here is the status of park operations:

  • Cabins 1-16, RV sites 17-22, and all primitive sites are available to reserve. Sewer hookups are temporarily unavailable at the RV sites, which will only have water and electric utilities until further notice.
  • The kayak launch will remain closed until the lake level further recedes.

  • The boat ramp, kayak launch, and day use area will remain closed until the lake level further recedes.
  • Park staff members are still in the process of contacting those whose reservations have been impacted by site closures.

Due to extensive rainfall, the Twin Coves Park Boat Ramp is closed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for residents to be patient while the lake recedes to a level that allows safe access. Park staff will monitor conditions, and we’ll update this page when the ramp has reopened.
