Elvis Presley Lake Closed Until Further Notice

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) announced that Elvis Presley Lake is closed until further notice.  The damage caused by the April 28, 2014 tornado has made the facility unsafe for all activities.

"All of the structures have been damaged and downed trees have made roads impassable," said Larry Pugh, Fisheries Bureau Director. "Clean up and repairs are now underway.  We will reopen the facility to public use activities once repairs have been completed."
