Winfield City Lake Water Level Full in time for Memorial Day- New Permitting System In Effect

Thanks to recent precipitation, the City of Winfield reports that the Winfield City Lake is now "above full pool" and ready for Memorial Day to the kick-off of the summer season. Crews have been preparing the area including a new payment and permitting system.

"After a couple long years of extreme drought conditions, we are excited to be back to full lake levels to allow the community to enjoy the recreation that the lake offers," said Taggart Wall, city manager. "We know people enjoy their lake days for grilling, boating, equestrian, camping, fishing and swimming."

The Winfield City Lake is a popular Kansas destination for summer fun, bringing visitors in from outside Cowley County for outdoors activities.

Winfield City lake rangers and crews have been busy preparing the lake for an influx of visitors including normal startup measures of road maintenance, mowing, trimming and opening winterized restroom facilities. Other improvements include upgrades to picnic facilities and boat access.

New this season is an automated payment and permit enforcement system. Those who use the facility will now use an in-person kiosk located at the South Entrance or access an online permitting system via phone or computer similar to those found at facilities across the state. This permit system uses license plates to track permits and lake rangers will use license plate readers to enforce permitting requirements.
