Heavy rain is impacting Broken Bow Lake according the area’s premiere fishing guide, Bryce Archey of BrokenBowLakeGuide.com.
“All boat ramps are closed until further notice. Depending on rains and what the Corp of Engineers can generate, my best case scenario for a ramp to open is three weeks. The park is still open but most camping in and around the lake is closed. We really don’t know when everything will be back open. Weather controls everything,” Archey said.
The flooding comes at a horrible time for tourism in the Beavers Bend State Park area. Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner and this will certainly have a significant financial impact to businesses in Broken Bow during the upcoming heavy tourist season.
Upscale luxury cabins in Beavers Bend State Park remain booked for the holiday weekend but toursim numbers will definitely be down until Broken Bow Lake is reopened.
