This Week at Grand Lake - July 1, 2024

Your Complete Fireworks Schedule!

Gooood Morning!

It is Grand Lake’s time to shine - warm mornings and evenings, hot afternoons, perfect water conditions, lots of places to go on the lake, and, oh yea, fireworks.

I’m coming to you a little earlier this morning because the family is here and we’ve got wakes to ride, so hitting the water here in a few.

But I think I’ve got most everything you need to know for the next few days down below.

So, a Hap Hap Happy Independence Day to all of you!

Get out there and enjoy this fantastic lake — but remember, head on a swivel, it is going to be busy out there.

And here is what you need to know for this July 4th week at Grand Lake (and, remember, if you are new around here I’ll be back Friday morning with everything you need to know for the weekend ahead):

Today’s Sponsor:

Special Promotion for Grand Lakers! Having your school’s flag on your boat is one thing, but is it time to take it to the next level? Well, here you go! Collegiate Waves is bringing officially licensed team towables and tubes to a lake near you - like Grand Lake! Now… OU and OSU fans… not yet. Those schools won’t be available this summer. BUT, you can get on their email list to stay informed, or I’ll keep you updated here. But for you Jayhawks, Hogs, Cats, and Tigers… use the PROMO CODE: GLL15 to take 15% off your order HERE. Man, that crimson and blue one looks sweet, don’t you think? Get yours today!

Lake Level - As of 6 am, the lake level is 744.2 with no generation. Lake temps are in the 80s and conditions are perfect!

Boating Safety - Safety first, and to that end, HERE is your annual reminder from GRDA to boat safe, boat smart, and boat sober. Plus, reminders and maps with Duck Creek rules, Woodard Hollow rules, and everything else you need.

Food Trucks - Marina Del Rey Resort near Ketchum is hosting their 3rd annual Food Truck Round-Up starting Wednesday and running through Saturday the 6th, from 11 am to 8 pm each day. Plus their pool is open ($10 day pass) and they have courtesy slips if you want to come by boat. There is a number posted at the docks for you to call and they will pick you up and take you up the hill to the fun.
