Area campgrounds and parks closed due to shutdown

Posted:
CENTRAL TEXAS -

Due to the government shutdown, the Fort Worth District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, announced that all Corps-operated campgrounds and parks will be closed.

Area campgrounds at Lake Waco, Lake Whitney, Aquilla Lake, Stillhouse Hollow Lake, and Lake Belton will be closed until the end of the shutdown.

"The Fort Worth District regrets the impacts these closures might have on the numerous patrons who recreate at our facilities," said Col. Charles Klinge, commander, Fort Worth District. "And we are working to keep the public fully informed about the availability and status of those facilities." 

They will not accept reservations or allow new visitors into the facilities. Campers on the grounds will be required to leave no later than Oct. 2 at 8 p.m.

Campers may cancel their reservations for a full refund, and those required to leave campsites can get a partial refund, or leave reservations open for possible use after the shutdown.

Customers may request a partial refund for any unused portion of their reservation, but if no action is taken, their reservations will automatically cancel. You can contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers customer services at 1-888-448-1474 (TDD 1-877-833-6777).
