Waters creep up and take over camping areas at the Canal Campground in Grand River, Ky on April 29, 2011. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Nashville district office are slowing releasing water in the Cumberland River basin, which feeds the also flooding Ohio River, which pours into the Mississippi at Cairo. Lake Barkley in Kentucky hit a record high level on Monday and continues to rise, flooding campgrounds, boat ramps and the communities of Dover and Cumberland City. Boat ramps, campgrounds and other recreation areas also are closed because of flooding at J. Percy Priest Lake, where a Corps dam is holding back the Stones River to preserve as much space as possible at Lake Barkley.
