Beseck Lake Boat Launch


The drawdown will commence during the week of October 16, 2023. After the 6 ft. depth is achieved, it will be maintained until January 31, 2024, when the water level will be raised to a 3 ft. drawdown. This 3 ft. level will be maintained until March 1, 2024 and then be restored to the normal surface water elevation by early April 2024.

Please note: With any drawdown and refill period, there is a chance the desired level and timing of refill may not be achieved within the anticipated timeframe due to weather conditions or other uncontrollable events.
