Jul 02, 2019

Langley – For many lake enthusiasts, the July 4th holiday marks the high point of the summer season on Oklahoma’s water playgrounds. The Grand River Dam Authority’s Grand and Hudson lakes are certainly no exception, as large crowds are expected to hit the water for boating, swimming, skiing, tubing, cruising or simply relaxing along the shore.

With that in mind, the GRDA Police Department wants to remind all those lake visitors that “boating safe, boating smart and boating sober” is still the best way to spend time on the water.

One special message the GRDA Police share with Grand Lake visitors each July 4th is the reminder that special boating rules are in effect for the Duck Creek arm of the lake.

Those rules are as follows:
