This is a tragedy for our parks. I do have great respect for our Nebraska Game and Parks. I live near Rock Creek and love to fish there. So do many others. I just wonder how much revenue will be lost just from that park alone from Kansas and Colorado visitors. As for cost? Geez...around 3 maybe 4 mowings a year? Other than that there really seems to be not much expense there. Like the gentleman said earlier..it will most likely cost more to put up a road block and patrol the lake than to keep it open. Also, the kayak fishing population has been growing rapidly and the Nebraska Game and Parks does a lot to promote kayaking. With these closures much water has been eliminated that kayakers currently paddle. I do understand that there should be upgrades in the outhouses. One question I have is that will fishing still be allowed? Can you drag your kayak to the water? It all sounds political to me.
