UPDATE (Aug. 6, 2019): Swimming at the Dry Brooks Day Use Area of Blue Marsh Lake was re-opened on Aug. 6, 2019. The Swimming Area was restricted on Aug. 2, 2019 due to high bacteria levels. Water tests were conducted daily until the levels returned to a safe level for public use. 

Blue Marsh Lake ranger staff would also like to remind those visitors that choose to enter the water at other areas of the lake, that the water in those areas is not tested and that swimming at Blue Marsh Lake is “swim at your own risk”.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants you to stay safe.  Don’t become a statistic – and always be prepared for the unexpected! To find a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project near you visit www.CorpsLakes.us
