FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, is preparing to replace several fishing and courtesy docks at Lake O’ the Pines. These docks have deteriorated from years of public use, and will be replaced with new docks. Replacement of the docks is estimated to be completed in approximately 60 days. Existing docks are currently being removed at Brushy Creek Campground, Buckhorn Creek Campground, Lakeside Day Use Area, and Johnson Creek Day Use Area.
During the removal and installation processes, the areas surrounding these docks will be closed to the public to ensure public safety. The Corps appreciates your patience as our facilities are repaired. For a current listing of facility closures, please visit the Fort Worth District Facility Closure Website at: http://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/lake/lakefacilities.htm, or contact our project office at 903-665-2336.
The Corps of Engineers number one priority is public safety, and urges boaters to wear life jackets and use caution while navigating. Boaters are reminded to CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY YOUR BOAT, TRAILER AND GEAR! Please avoid or minimize boat travel through any mats of vegetation to limit the spread of invasive species.
