23 Jun 11 - Record-high water has inundated Rock Creek Marina on Fort Peck Reservoir's Dry Arm leaving the main access road 3 feet underwater in one place.

A record-setting year of moisture (including record-shattering snowpack) has raised the 134-mile-long reservoir to its highest level ever, an elevation of 2,252.3 feet as of last Thursday. Full pool at the reservoir is 2,250.

Inflows from the Missouri River have forced the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to release a record amount of water from its spillway - yet the lake level keeps rising.

Water levels could possibly stay that way into August, said John Daggett, the Army Corps' dam operations manager in Fort Peck.

At Hell Creek State Park, north of Jordan, 60 spaces are underwater, while at Fourchette Bay, the lower end of the campground is under standing water and about one-third of the sites are not accessible.
