Raystown camps to open Thursday

Federally managed campgrounds at Raystown Lake will reopen Thursday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, recently announced.

This includes all Seven Points Campground Loops, Nancy’s Camp Boat-to-Shore and Susquehannock Campground.

Online camping reservations for Raystown Lake can be made starting Monday at www.recreation.gov. Patrons with reservations at campgrounds booked through Wednesday will be contacted by email about cancellations, and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Individuals should not contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.

Raystown Lake Mountain Biking Skills Park in the Seven Points Recreation Area will reopen Wednesday.

The Raystown Lake Visitors Center, Seven Points Beach, Tatman Run Beach and group picnic shelters remain closed. An official date for the reopening of these facilities has not been determined. All special events and group gatherings, including fishing tournaments, have also been canceled until further notice, the Corps said in a release.

Restrooms located in Corbin’s Island, Raystown Lake Dam, Snyder’s Run, Aitch, James Creek, Tatman Run (Boat Launch only) and Weaver Falls, Pine Howard Miller (near Redbud Shelter) and Seven Points Boat Launch 1 & 2 reopened last week.

Day-use facilities and lake access areas remain open, such as boat launches, picnic areas, fishing piers and viewing areas, and all trails in Seven Points, including the Allegrippis Trails and the Greenside Pathway, are currently available for bikers, hikers and runners.
