Anyone know if C.C. will reopen tomorrow?

Post By: Hawaiian Punch      Posted: 5/8/2022 3:51:53 PM     Points: 10109    
Went to C.C. early this morning . .only to find the boat ramp full of rescue trucks.There was a drowning late yesterday and the lake was closed to boating today while they searched for the body.I have tried to call any and all phone numbers that claim to be C.C. park related and got only disconnected messages/or answering services that can't answer anything . . .does anyone know if the body was recovered/will the lake open to boating tomorrow?
Thanks guys!

That is correct. They were wrapping up recovery efforts about 7 pm when I drove over the dam road . Set to resume at 7am.
Very unfortunate, especially when a pfd is required for being towed on a tube..
Hopefully the family will get some closure soon.

pretty wild that they haven't found him yet.

you'd think he would show up pretty clearly on sonar.

They reportedly spotted something substantial on the bottom using sonar and sent divers down. Turned out to be a kayak. Hope they left it as structure!
