MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. –The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mountain Home Project Office will open more parks on Friday, Aug. 21 around Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes. Some parks never opened this summer and remained closed because of high water and operating procedures related to COVID-19.

On Norfork Lake, campsites 8-69 at Cranfield Park will open. The day use area will remain closed because of continued high water, damaged facilities, and debris. At Panther Bay, all campsites are open and were made available on Friday, Aug. 14.

On Bull Shoals Lake, campsites A1-A12 at Lead Hill Park, and campsites 2-7 at Beaver Creek Park will open. Oakland and Tucker Hollow parks still require repairs and will reopen at a later date.
