Last year, summer lake goers dealt with too little water and now they're about to contend with too much. Angel Acers works at the lake's School House Slough and told 7News that business was really slow at the beginning of the season. The season has gotten off to a soggy start, but once the rain cleared, campers and boaters started showing up ready to take advantage of the plentiful water.
Last year, the water was really low so this year everyone was surprised that more people didn't come out. Officers had hoped that high lake levels would have the lake jumping. Lake Lawtonka is one of the few lakes in Oklahoma where people can use their boats. They're pretty confident, though, that the recreation area will start filling up over Labor Day weekend.
