Alerts and Important Information
Due to the fact that Grenada Lake is a flood control reservoir and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, on July 1 of each year the water level starts dropping in anticipation of the winter rains. On January 1 it starts a slow rise to get back to the recreation pool level. Many boat launch ramps are inoperable during this time however there are always low water ramps on the lake that are useable and available.

Swimming beaches will remain open.

No pets are allowed in cabins, villa, motels or any other park building. All campers need to bring at least 30 feet of extension cord for some campsites.

Pets are NOT ALLOWED in or around the CABIN AREA.
The ONE BEDROOM Cabins have 2 FULL SIZE BEDS.
