Elk City State Park News

Welcome to Elk City State Park!

Park Conditions -   Due to high water, some areas are still closed or have limited access.  The water has receded enough to open the dump station, laundry house, and shower house in Comfort Cove.  Prairie Meadow and Timber Road campgrounds are open.  Comfort Cove sites 1-18 and 25-46 are open and more may be available as water continues to drop.  There are no utility sites available on Sunset Point.  The boat ramp is not reachable but boats have been launching from flooded parking lot.  Please use caution if launching and operating a vessel due to fishing jetties and other hazards currently underwater and not marked.  Buoys have moved from original locations due to high water.  The fishing and boating docks are not accessible due to high water.  The park trails are usable but use caution due to washouts and debris.  Call the office for site availability.
