From the Oroville Mercury-Register:

Three campgrounds at Little Grass Valley Reservoir near LaPorte, Calif., are without water today due to a water system failure.

Crews were working to restore water to the Little Beaver, Red Feather and Running Deer campgrounds, the Plumas National Forest reported.

Portable toilets have been brought in, but campers are advised to bring their own water.


From The Daily Ardmoreite, Ardmore:

Although heat, drought and fire danger has led Chickasaw National Recreation Area officials to temporarily close the Guy Sandy Campground and the multi-use area of the park from Veterans Lake to Cedar Blue Road, park spokesperson Dan Winings said visitors can still find plenty to do.

“While the summer heat is producing near record setting conditions for some areas in south-central Oklahoma, campers are still enjoying visiting campgrounds at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Visitors can still water ski or swim in the Lake of the Arbuckles to find relief from the July sun,” Winings said.

Other campgrounds and picnic areas also remain open, but a burn ban is in effect on all ash burning fires. In addition, Winings said the Travertine Nature Center is open each day from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and children are also invited to participate in the park’s Junior Ranger program.
