ROGERS (KFSM)- Some campers are making different plans for Memorial Day weekend following flooding at some Beaver Lake campsites.

Travis Kershner and his family booked a campsite at Horseshoe Bend Park in Rogers, but on Wednesday (May 20) they decided to pack up and head home to Fayetteville after they were flooded out.

"We were going to stay out here most of the week and bring some family out and have a good weekend at the lake," Kershner said.

He said the family had already moved their camping trailer to higher ground once this week.

"[The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers] wanted us to come move because they said the water was coming up," Kershner said.

But when they were told even their new spot was at risk, the Kershner family decided to do something else Memorial Day weekend.

"We'll just find something else to do and come back out when the weather is a little better," Kershner said.

Right now, Beaver Lake is about 3.28 feet away from being at capacity and the area has seen more than six inches of rain in the last 30 days.
