Copan Lake News and Notices

Ramp Closure Notice

Copan Lake is experiencing record low lake levels.  Out of concern for public safety the boat ramps at Washington Cove Campground will be closed on September 25TH 2023.  US Army Corps of Engineers field staff are regularly monitoring the ramp conditions at the Copan Point Recreation Area, and these ramps will remain open until deemed unsafe for public use.  Lake levels vary at US Army Corps of Engineers project lakes and boaters are advised to use caution and watch for obstructions.   Please contact the Copan Lake office with any questions at (918)532-4334.


Water Safety

The Corps wants to encourage the public to come enjoy the lake and all its amenities this upcoming weekend. We also want to encourage our visitors to use caution while boating, fishing, or swimming. Watch Your Children! Each year about 200 children drown and several thousand others are treated in hospitals for submersion accidents, accidents which leave children with permanent brain damage and respiratory health problems. Remember, it only takes a few seconds for a small child to wander away and as little as 8 seconds for a child to drown. Children have a natural curiosity and attraction to water. Watch your children at all times when around the water and ensure that everyone wears a proper-fitting lifejacket.  For more information about water safety visit our water safety page.

Copan Lake Office encourages you to contact a member of our staff with any questions or concerns. Our office telephone number is 918-532-4334, or you can re-visit this webpage for periodic updates.
