A majority of campgrounds in eastern Oklahoma will not open this summer.
As FOX23 first told you in April, the Army Corps of Engineers says federal budget cuts are preventing them from opening more than a dozen recreation sites along the McClellan-Kerr navigation system on the Arkansas River.
The Corps has hundreds-of-thousands of dollars less to work with this year. That money covers mowing contracts, cleaning contracts and trash pick-up.
