We also want to encourage our visitors to use caution while boating, fishing, or swimming. Always watch children very closely around water and ensure that everyone wears a proper-fitting lifejacket. There are a number of submerged hazards in the lake during flood conditions. High lake levels can change our normal safe conditions considerably. There are numerous hidden hazards in the lake including, floating debris, partially submerged structures such as picnic tables, tops of trees or islands, and unfamiliar drop-offs along the shoreline.
