Thunder Over Patoka, Patoka Lake
Start Date: 7/4/2020Start Time: 10:00 PM
End Date: 7/4/2020End Time: 11:00 PM
Event Description:
Cost: Entrance into Patoka Lake -$7/ in-state vehicle and $9/out-of-state vehicle
Plan to arrive early.

Enjoy a fireworks display at Patoka Lake Beach on Saturday, July 4. Fireworks will start around 10:00p.m. Bring your family and friends, lawn chairs and blankets for this Independence Day celebration!

This year we are expecting increased traffic into the property. Anyone planning to attend the fireworks show should plan to arrive early to the property and beach area. Staff recommends spending the entire day here to ensure that you get into the show. Plan on visiting the Nature Center, having a family picnic, playing a round of disc golf and enjoying the beach. Parking spots will be limited. With increased visitation, property staff expect to meet capacity. Once the capacity has been met, vehicles will be let into Newtown Stewart State Recreation Area on a one by one basis as another vehicle leaves.

 Anyone camping at Patoka Lake should expect that if they leave through the entrance gate anytime on Saturday, July 4 that they may not get back in very quickly.  A special viewing section has been set up for fireworks viewing in the Modern Campground section C.  If viewing from the beach, campers should follow the path past the camp store down to the beach instead of driving.  Allow vehicle traffic at the beach for those entering the property on the day of the fireworks show.
