Some parks and boat ramps are closed due to high water or flood damage. Check the Army Corps of Engineers and State Parks Alert Map for updates.

Eleven boat ramps, seven parks, and two private floating marinas provide plenty of lake access for water recreation. The US Army Corps of Engineers operates three parks that offer campsites with picnic tables, grills, restrooms, and showers. Most sites have shelter-tops. Electricity is extra. The Nails Creek and Birch Creek units of Lake Somerville State Park offer camping and other activities. For details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
