New camp, cart rules at lake

Staff Report

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District has announced updates of two recreational policies at Grenada Arkabutla, Enid, and Sardis lakes, effective June 1.
Policy updates are for the length of stay in campgrounds and the use of low speed vehicles in campgrounds.
The length of stay for camping at Grenada, Arkabutla, Enid and Sardis lakes will be 14 consecutive days. At the end of a camper’s 14-day stay, campers may apply for an extension for up to 14 additional days.
During the peak season of March-October, one extension may be granted per visit for a total stay of 28 consecutive days, according to a Corps’ news release.
In non-peak season, November- February, up to two extensions may be granted per visit for a total stay of 42 consecutive days.
At the end of the campers’ stay, they must leave the campground for 14 days before returning, but may move to another campground at the same lake during this time.
Prior to this policy, the lakes had different peak seasons and length of stay policies differed from lake to lake and sometimes campground to campground.

Golf carts
A new low speed vehicle policy will primarily affect golf cart use within campgrounds, according to the news release.
For many years, campers have been allowed to operate golf carts within campgrounds at the lakes. The new policy will limit golf cart use to only those people with permanent disabilities.
