I am guessing the Army Corp of Engineers is holding back the water as long as they can to help those areas downstream time that are flooded. We have sites completely underwater and some of the electric boxes are getting close to being dangerous.
That doesn't stop the fishermen though. The lake is full of them in their boats for a fishing tournament. But you really don't need a boat to fish today. At the beach area, you could fish from the parking lot because some of it is underwater. Ken captured this picture of a fisherman sitting in his chair at the edge of the parking lot. He named it, "Never Ever Give Up". I just hope he moves his chair before it is underwater also.
To get to the dock in the campground you would also have to wade through water. We got a kick out of this sign near the campground dock which is helpful in late summer most of the time but not appropriate with the conditions we have today. In case you can't read it, it says, "Caution: Boating hazardous due to unusually low water." The water in that area is nearly up on the road leading to the dock.
Beach, where is the beach? It is gone! Completely underwater! Oh well, no sun to sit under anyway. I'll skip the blanket on the beach and stay in the truck today.
Our two yurts which are lakefront property, are close to being underwater. The water is close to the level of the deck they are built on.
Hosts, Pat and Butch, enjoy using their kayaks here at Mosquito Lake. But they will have to swim out to get them. They also have to swim to adjust their satelite dish. The back of their Class A is sitting over water also. They have a sign they usually hang on their post that says, "Beach Bums" so I guess they really are!
I'm sure a lot of people at campgrounds across the country are dealing with this same wet weather, but I sure hope it ends soon.
