Rangers are warning people to be aware of potential hazards caused by low water conditions.

They say a boat ramp was closed there after water receded revealing a large hole near the base of the ramp.

Officials have set up courtesy docks and boat ramps but hope that Monday’s rain will bring the water level back up.
