The North Tailwater area near the Red Rock Dam will be closed to the public today as construction of hydroelectric facilities begins. Bill Radio with Missouri River Services says they have worked to help offset some of the closed areas. He says they have constructed new picnic shelters, a playground, a fish-cleaning station, the new Robert’s Creek Trailhead, and expanded the Volksweg Bike Trail. The closure will include the North Tailwater Recreation Area of Lake Red Rock and a section of the Volksweg Trail from Howell Station Campground to the North Overlook Picnic Area until the project is complete in 2018.
