Park Rangers are warning Beaver lake campers about the possibility of rising water and potential flooding during the next week.  Last April, during a episode of heavy rain the lake rose more than 15 ft in three days.  That capped off an April that saw more than 14 inches of rain, this week alone some are saying more than 10 inches could fall on the lake.

For Spring-break campers with campsites near the water, this could mean trouble.  In fact, officials are recommending campers staying in the Hickory Creek campground to move to Pine Creek.

Corps officials say that there are no plans to open floodgates, but they will be watching the water level throughout the week and plan accordingly.
