It seems like this lake looks for any reason to lock the gates and deny access to the ramps, most of which requires no staff to manage. Before it said all the ramps are closed because of flooding, that's always their excuse. Now the lake level is normal the last day or so they changed it to "Closed until further notice due to COVID-19", oh great!! This seems like it is unlawful! Would one of those online petitions work on this? Maybe someone on here has some pull? What about JP, I bet if he calls them he can straiten them out!!

Do they think they are helping to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 with these public access closures? No quite the opposite, now all the ramps that are open are a zoos! 10 of 16 ramps closed because of covid-19 at lavon? Now the 6 ramps that are open are way over crowded, they are making COVID-19 worse!! I know there are other lakes with this same problem, but this lake is right by my house, and it makes me mad damit!!

Oh I know that excuse is not new, floods is the BS excuse they used for years to lock the gates, and for no good reasons! But what is new is this "COVID-19" excuse "until further notice" OMG my BS meter is in redline!!!

They probably had people calling "why are the gates locked, there is no flood?". Like they get every year, then someone has to go out and clear the logs off the ramp, gezz volunteers would gladly do this. But now, they do not need to clear the logs off the ramps, they got an extension excuse, COVID-19!

It must be government job. This is almost like when the state works on the highway. I have actually seen 1 guy tighten a bolt on guardrail and 4 more were setting on that rail. I guess they were holding it in place. I couldn't run my business that way and be profitable.

The ones that are closed are the ones inside the campgrounds. They are deterring camping. Could they just close a different gate? Yes!!! I hate that they are that inept at management. What's the deal with Caddo Park up north anyway???

The COE that is running Lavon would be happy to shut everything down and never allow anyone on or around the lake--EVER.

This is the only lake on earth that has been shut down for low water and high water --IN THE SAME MONTH-That actually happened 3-4 years ago.

We went to Lavonia two weeks ago and there were probably 100 boat trailers there. Lot was full and trailers parked on both sides of the road for 1/4 mile. People everywhere.

We put in at Twin Groves one day last week and there were a lot of people there but it was not crowded--You just had to dodge the craters in the driveway--they are no longer potholes, now they are craters!

Ones with no camp grounds are closed too, like pebble beach and little ridge. No reason to lock those gates. And why close camp grounds? They are way more than 6 feet apart lol.

It’s laughable for sure , zero social distancing at Lavonia

The COE needs an overhaul in general, they need to lease out East Fork park in it’s entirety to a private for profit entity and watch what it could become.

There are rumors that the COE will be easing up on restrictions soon.
