Millerton Lake sees smaller Memorial Day crowds

After two days of long lines at the entrance to the Millerton Lake recreation area, Memorial Day was an entirely different picture.

Millerton Lake is just a short drive away - about 15 miles north of downtown.

Park rangers told Action News they believe cloud cover, windy conditions and choppy water were responsible for smaller-than-expected crowds at the lake on Memorial Day.

However, many who did make it to the lake said they were glad they were able to make it and enjoyed the holiday.
