JEFFERSON (KYTX) - Buttons Damm traveled from Texarkana to Jefferson to spend time with her grown children and enjoy the next 3 days at this campground on the shores of Lake O' the Pines.
"We knew nothing except what's on this sign"
"We were going to do some camping, some fishing but we can't get into the lake it's locked."
Rickey Maxey with the Army Corps of Engineers says that people on Corps-Operated land had to leave by 8 PM Wednesday because the budget hasn't been renewed.
"All the federally operated facilities are closed, if you wanted to launch at any of our boat ramps or camp at our parks they are closed until further notice"
And as for Buttons ..
"We will wait another hour and watch the sunset, and then go home."
