Boating at Raystown already overcrowded

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers made the correct decision in designating Hawn’s Peninsula and adjacent Terrace Mountain at Raystown Lake as an Environmentally Sensitive Area, Vegetative Management and Wildlife Management.

Seventy-five percent of public comments during the Master Plan update supported these designations, as do the scientific data.

Furthermore, the lake boating study revealed that Raystown Lake already is overcrowded. Neither the public nor the scientific data support any additional resort development.
