Nolin campgrounds closed for high water

By Don Brown -

According to a release from the US Army Corps of Engineers, two campgrounds at Nolin Lake will be closed at least for this weekend because of rising water levels at the lake.

It is anticipated that water levels will reach approximately 525 feet above sea level by Sunday morning. Lake levels at that height will cause the Wax Campground to be closed at noon on Saturday.

In addition, several sites at the Dog Creek Campground will be closed this weekend. Significant additional rainfall may result in an earlier closure. Campers affected by the closures will receive refunds.

Boat ramps, parking lots and other facilities have also been affected by the high water. Pay attention to hazard signs and barricades which will help you avoid hazards and assist in allowing access to some areas.

Boaters should use caution this weekend as the lake contains lots of drift and submerged debris.

For questions, call the Corps office at 270-286-4511.
