Due to the ongoing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District has extended its recreation area closures through June 1.
In addition, campgrounds, swim beaches and visitor centers at lakes remained closed until further notice. This includes Corps locations at Wilson Lake and Kanopolis Lake.
However, Kansas state parks, fishing lakes and wildlife areas are currently open to the public, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism reported.
Individuals with paid campsite or shelter reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Individuals should not attempt to contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.
The Corps of Engineers regrets any inconvenience caused by these closures and continues to keep the safety and health of our employees, contractors, and volunteers our top priority.
