U.S. Army Corps of Engineers prepare Belton and Stillhouse Hollow Lakes for 2016 recreation season

Published Feb. 23, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers at Belton and Stillhouse Lakes will open all parks for the summer season on March 1, but because of flood damage or construction the following parks are impacted: 

Westcliff Park has experienced major damage to the camping/picnic shelter tops so the tops have been removed for public safety.  All sites will be open and Camping sites #1-20 will be offered at a discounted rate for campers. 

Sparta Valley Park has experienced some major flood erosion on the road to the boat ramp and it is not safe therefore the park will be closed to vehicle traffic until further notice. 

Cedar Ridge Park - roads and Camping pads are being repaired, so campsites #41-68 will remain closed until at least May 1, dependent on construction schedule. 

Live Oak Park – roads are being repaired, so campsites #39-48 will remain closed until at least April 1, dependent on construction schedule.  

These adjustments are necessary to provide safe facilities for the general public.   

For more information, please contact the Belton and Stillhouse Hollow Lakes Office at (254) 939-2461.
