BRANSON, Mo. - As fall approaches, the summer recreation season comes to an end. The Corps of Engineers Table Rock Project Office will close seven parks for the winter recreation season, Sept. 16. Parks that closing are: Aunts Creek, Baxter, Big M, Eagle Rock, Long Creek, Viola, and Viney Creek.

Parks remaining open with full amenities through Oct. 31 are: Campbell Point, Cape Fair, Indian Point, and Mill Creek.

Beginning Nov. 1, winter camping at Table Rock Lake will be available at a reduced rate at the following parks: Indian Point, Cape Fair, and Cricket Creek. Minimal amenities will be provided at these locations and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Boat ramp access will be available at all recreation facilities throughout the winter.

If you like planning ahead, it’s not too early to start making plans for next year. The 2013 recreation season begins in April. Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or visit the website at www.recreation.gov and make your reservations in advance.
