TULSA, Okla. (KFSM)- Due to damage at its parks from flooding in May and June, the Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has cancelled campsite reservations for all campgrounds at Lake Tenkiller and Lake Eufaula.

Tenkiller Lake has cancelled reservations at its campsites for July due to flooding and other damage following the high water. Parks at the lake include Chicken Creek, Cookson Bend, Elk Creek, Pettit Bay I and II, Snake Creek and Strayhorn Landing.

Eufaula Lake has cancelled reservations at its parks for the remainder of the recreation season, which ends Sept. 30. Parks at the lake include Belle Star, Brooken Cove, Dam Site South, Gentry Creek, Highway 9 Landing and Porum Landing.

All campers who receive a cancellation notice will get a 100% refund, according to Kent Dunlap, the Tulsa District chief of Recreation Services. Guests should allow the National Recreation Reservation System between five and seven working days to process their cancellation refund. The NRRS is making every effort to notify customers by automated messaging system.

Camp sites at Lake Tenkiller and Eufaula will be available on a first-come, first-served basis as sites are restored.

"Out staff is working to repair and reopen parks and camping sites as quickly as possible, but more rain will slow down our progress," Dunlap said.
