June 29 Flooding: The beach in Patoka Lake's Newton-Stewart SRA is now closed due to high water. The Osborne Fishing Pier is also closed. All boat ramps are open, and no campsites are affected. Boaters should use caution as they pass under any bridges as water may continue to rise. Please check back for updates.
ASH TREE REMOVAL: Patoka Lake is in the process of removing ash trees in the campground and throughout the property (due to damage caused by the emerald ash borer.) Once tree removal is completed, campsite descriptions will be updated to reflect any changes in levels of shade or sunlight on each site. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
BLUE-GREEN ALGAE INFO: Blue-green algae (BGA) is found in our lakes year round. When conditions are right, cells can reproduce in large numbers, and can result in a harmful algal bloom (HAB). We test many of our beaches where people use the water in the summer, but HABs may occur in other seasons too. Watch for algae accumulation, avoid drinking or cooking with lake water, and do not allow children or pets to swim where algae accumulation is present. For more information, visit www.algae.IN.gov or read our FAQ sheet here.
