Camp Arbuckle Campground closed due to flooding

Polk County Parks and Recreation staff has evacuated and closed the Lake Arbuckle campground. Lake Arbuckle is southeast of Frostproof.

According to Parks Superintendent Mike Callender, the water in the area has risen and is flowing over the access road and into the park.

“We will continue to monitor, however we don't have any time frame for reopening at this time,” said Callender. Prior to reopening the potable water system will need to be tested, emergency vehicles will need to be able to access and the septic system will need to function.
