The lake continues to rise but Norfork seems to be the best alternative to the other area lakes. You can still drive or walk to Blackburns dock and go down some steps and get on the dock and park on the road. We have no diminished services. I am still launching boats here but you might want to launch your boat at Panther Bay and drive your boat to Blackburns dock where it can remain for the length of your stay. With no rain coming for the next week they will have to let some water out sooner or later. I do not understand why they are still trying to regulate Newport at 12-feet. The lake is not muddy or dirty and is actually pretty clear. We have not received the rain compared to other places and the creeks have not run. We are just holding other people’s water with very little generation not keeping up with the river inflow. Guests here are enjoying the lake and having fun. Many areas have no dock or lake access but Blackburns has. Come on down. We just have more lake to play in.
