Four months ago Lake Buffalo had water. However, the lake has now dried up and Iowa Park city leaders say this once popular fishing hole was becoming an illegal dump.
So about a month ago leaders had the lake's access gates locked, which closed access to off road drivers from using the mounds of dirt and concrete slabs around the lake.
But a member of an off roading organization petitioned the council to allow access on weekends again and the council agreed.
They voted to unlock the gates at Lake Buffalo from Friday afternoon through Monday morning to allow the recreation, which started this past weekend.
The off roaders are prohibited from driving on the lake bed itself.
