Army Corps Closing Penn. Parks Due to Flooding

High water along Raystown Lake in Hungtindon County, Penn., has forced the closure of several boat launches, nearby parking areas and some campgrounds, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday (Sept. 13), according to The Tribune-Review.

The recent heavy rains associated with Tropical Storm Gordon has resulted in the closing this weekend of the following boat launches: Snyder’s Run, Seven Points, Aitch Boat, James Creek, Tatman Run, Shy Beaver and Weaver Falls.

The launches will re-open once water levels recede and Army Corps staff determines watercraft can be launched safely. Once the launches reopen, there will be significant debris associated with high water events that is expected both on the lake surface and submerged water, the Corps said.

Camping is still available this weekend in the Ridge and Meadow campgrounds, but Point, Senoia, and Valley campgrounds are closed due to high water levels.
