Two ramps at Roosevelt Lake east of Phoenix are closed due to low lake levels.

Tonto National Forest officials say Roosevelt Lake has dropped to 44 percent full, causing the Grapevine and Schoolhouse ramps to be out of the water.

Officials say the ramps will remain closed until there's enough rain to raise water levels to safely reopen the boat ramps.

The public can still launch their watercraft at the marina or at the Badger and Ringtail boat ramps at Windy Hill Campground.

Roosevelt Lake is located about 80 miles east of Phoenix.
