Texoma-area campgrounds maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Tulsa District will be closed starting Monday, March 23, as part of the government's effort to limit the transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

In a news release issued Friday morning, the Corps said the decision to close the facilities until May 15 was made to protect employees and visitors.

The Tulsa District maintains 10 campgrounds at Lake Texoma, including:
• Buncombe Creek
• Caney Creek
• Johnson Creek
• Lakeside
• Platter Flats
• Burns Run West
• Burns Run East
• Dam Site

The Corps also offers camping at other sites in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.

Reservations will be honored through Sunday, but reservations after that through mid-May are canceled.

Boat ramps at Corps facilities that are not part of a campground will remain open until further notice.
