Burnsville Lake Reopens to Boating

Published May 18, 2020

HUNTINGTON, WV – Burnsville Lake in Burnsville, W.Va., Is now open to boating.  Repairs have been made to the water line that supplies recreational facilities on the Bulltown end of Burnsville Lake and residences in the area.

The underwater line had to be floated to make the repairs. It has been weighted and appears to be underwater.  However, there is still air in the line, and it could float again.  It will be monitored, but boaters are cautioned to look for the line as they travel on the lake.  If it is spotted floating, please immediately notify the Corps of Engineers at 304-853-2371.

We regret the inconvenience that this closure has caused boaters. The gate at the dam will open every morning at 7 a.m., and the gate at Bulltown Launch Ramp will open at 8 a.m.

For additional information, please call Burnsville Lake at 304-853-2371 or the Public Affairs Office at 304-399-5353.
