Kingsley Reservoir Nears Reopening For Recreation

The long-running expansion of the Kingsley Reservoir is reaching its conclusion, and that means it will reopen to recreation sometime this summer.  Farmers Irrigation District Manager Les Perkins says substantial work is finished, with a bridge over the spillway, a building, a tower, and a couple of gates remaining.  Perkins says wet conditions have slowed that down, but they are moving as quickly as they can.  He hopes the reservoir will be open to recreation in early summer, adding there will be improvements in place, including a new boat ramp, enlarged staging area, more restrooms, and a new and larger campground.  Perkins says the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will be stocking the reservoir with fish in the latter part of May.
