Flooding in Avant, Sperry, Skiatook

Flooding in Avant, Sperry, Skiatook Tallchief Cove is closed as are all other swim areas.” LINDSEY CHASTAIN/Skiatook Journal

Recreation areas at Skiatook Lake remain closed as we move into the summer months. Recreation areas include campgrounds, boat ramps, swimming and picnic areas.

Skiatook Lake is still around 15 feet above normal after the recent flooding. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said they do not have an expected date for when the recreation areas will be open.

We are waiting on more information from Crystal Bay Marina.

Cross Timbers Marina is open with access to boat docks as well as boat and cottage rentals open. The boat service department is also up and running.
