Mark Twain Lake Fee's Suspended

Published April 23, 2021

Mark Twain Lake, April 23, 2021 –  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake is suspending the collection of fees at all boat launching ramps, the John Spalding swimming beach, and the David C. Berti shooting range until further notice. Annual boat ramp passes also will not be issued at this time.
Mark Twain Lake is currently transitioning to credit/debit card only fee machines at these areas as the only accepted form of payment.  The old honor vault system with envelopes for cash collections has already been removed, as cash payments will no longer be accepted at the lake.
A follow up news release will be posted once the fee machines are in place. We thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter. 
We hope everyone has a great recreation season, and remember, your life jacket will not work if you do not wear it!
