OKLAHAHOMA CITY -- Budget cuts are forcing the closure of several state parks in Oklahoma.

The following parks are scheduled to close by the end of this summer:

Adair State Park-Stilwell
Beaver Dunes-Beaver
Boggy Depot-Atoka
Brushy Lake-Sallisaw
Heavener Runestone-Heavener
Lake Eucha-Jay

Agency officials say closing the parks will save nearly $700,000 a year.
