  • Low water levels close Patoka beach

    BIRDSEYE – Due to extremely low water and unsafe swimming conditions, the Patoka Lake beach and beach area are currently closed until further notice. No swimming will be allowed.
    The irregular shape of the shoreline under the water’s surface allows for sudden unseen drop-offs that make swimming or wading unsafe at this time. In addition, boaters should continue to use extreme caution around the lake as there are areas of shallow water in all parts of the lake.
    For more information, contact the reservoir office at (812) 685-2464.
