The Beach Is Back!


Lake McConaughy Game & Parks superintendent Bill Oligmueller reports “a perfect mix” of beach and water levels at the lake this summer.  He says, “We saw about 25,000 campers a day over Memorial Day weekend.  People are really excited to have enough beach for camping again after the high water levels last summer.  And there’s plenty of water for boating and fishing, as well.”  All 8 main boat ramps are expected to remain in service all season.  Officials are also predicting a banner month for walleye fishing at Lake McConaughy.
