MARQUETTE, Kan. (AP) -- Visitors to Kanopolis State Park this holiday weekend should have an easier time using their boats after a weeklong dredging operation.

The central Kansas lake is about 8 feet below its normal depth, causing problems for boat access at ramps.

Park staff worked nearly all week to dredge near the ramp at Langley Point, the only usable boat ramp.

Park manager Rick Martin says the last time similar dredging was done at the park was in 2006.

Martin says the lake is so low because no water is coming from Smoky Hill River.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/13P899c ) that despite the low water, 70 percent of the lakes sites that can be reserved have been claimed for the weekend. And all rental cabins are taken.
