U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District announces phased reopening of recreation facilities, campsites

Posted May 8, 2020

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fort Worth District will begin a phased reopening of USACE recreation areas that were closed due to COVID-19.

The decision to reopen is specific to each recreation area and is based largely on the safety of staff and visitors. All visitors should contact the lake project office for specific site openings or view the latest facility status.

The Fort Worth District reopened day use areas beginning May 7. While day use areas will be open, playgrounds and group shelter areas will remain closed until further notice. Campsites will be available for reservations no later than June 1. Campground reservations must be made in advance.

Visitors should also note:

  • Many USACE-sponsored events, tournaments, volunteer activities and public meetings remain canceled until further notice.
  • Visitor centers and lake offices remain closed to the public until further notice.
  • Group shelters, pavilions, courts and playgrounds are not available until further notice.
  • Shoreline management activities including one-on-one contacts that require USACE personnel to make a site visit or inspection may proceed consistent with social distancing guidelines.
  • Restroom facilities are cleaned on a scheduled basis, but cannot be considered as sanitized with respect to COVID-19.
