Camping limits enacted at Arcadia Lake
The Edmond City Council approved a 14-day limit consecutively for camping at Arcadia Lake this week. The vote was 4-0.
The Fish & Game Commission approved the recommendation in February when Edmond Parks and Recreation Director Craig Dishman discussed the policy. A camper can move to any site within the 14-day limit, Dishman said.
“They can go to another park at Arcadia Lake — to Scissor Tail or Central State Park — something like that,” Dishman said. “We’re trying to minimize the permanent residents that has kind of taken place out there.”
The new ordinance is consistent with state parks in Oklahoma, he said. It would be in effect from March 1 through Oct. 31.
