LBL to Reopen Friday after 2-Week Shutdown

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area will re-open Friday afternoon, after a 16-day shutdown that closed the park and furloughed employees.

Public Affairs Specialist Denise Schmittou says the delay in opening allows park employees the opportunity to check facilities along the 170,000-acre site.

Schmittou says LBL is currently accepting camping reservations online at LBL.org and phone lines will re-open later today. Reservation reimbursements will be determined next week.
