Recreation areas to stay closed

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, West Point Project has released the 2008 Recreation Park schedule for West Point Lake. The Corps manages five campgrounds and 31 day use parks located around the project. In order to effectively manage the facilities that are open, five areas with limited use will remain closed. Those are Alligator Creek Park, Evansville Park, Wehadkee Park, Dewberry and Ringer Campground.

Recreation areas open May 3- Sept 1 are Yellowjacket (706-882-1805), Earl Cook (706-885-0314), and Rocky Point (334-499-2420).
