DODGE CITY — Years of planning and construction are about to pay off for the HorseThief Reservoir project.
The manmade lake, located just west of Jetmore, welcomes the public for the first time with an open house Saturday and Sunday. The lake will be open for swimming, boating, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing. There will be tables and fire rings available for family picnics.
Hours for the open house are from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. Vehicle permits will not be required during the event.
“We’re still working on landscaping and the camping areas, so parking will be somewhat limited,” park manager Josh Hobbs told the Globe in a phone interview Friday.
According to Hobbs, the boat ramps are ready and one beach area will be open. Trees have been planted, but shade is still somewhat scarce.
