The lake, Point Place landing and Shell Beach landing will remain open. Use caution during low water conditions while navigating and/or performing water sport activities as underwater debris is being exposed and/or just under the water line, especially close to shorelines that could cause damage to boat props or hulls and/or personal injury.
