Lake Capote Recreation Area



Lake Capote Operating Schedule Change

Due to a temporary staff shortage, the lake is going to operate on a 4-day open schedule, Thursday through Sunday. The Bait Shop hours are from 8:00am – 5:00pm Thursday through Sunday. Camping will be permitted only on the nights of Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Campers who stay Saturday night are required to depart on Sunday as we are effectively closed for business on Mondays.

Carp Bow Fishing

Bow fishing for carp is now available to the general public throughout the entire season at Lake Capote. Archers must obtain a fishing permit and may use their own archery equipment following favorable inspection by Lake staff. Equipment is also available for rent at the Lake.
