Visitation and revenue are subject to weather. Rain and/or wind adversely impacts attendance especially on key weekends during the summer. Water Level is not such a factor. Lower than maximum water levels provide better access to beach camping and more secluded boating areas. 2011 4th of July weekend attendance was approximately 96,000. In 2010 it was 110,000 visitors.
