Burnsville Dam Access Closed Temporarily

Published Oct. 20, 2015

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntington District will restrict access to Burnsville Dam in Burnsville, W.Va., due to construction on the top of the dam that begins this week. Four block structures are being built to house motors.

This restriction will only be in effect during the hours that the construction workers and support personnel are at the site, which will typically be business hours. All other times regular access will be granted.

The work will not affect access to the lake and Riffle Run Campground behind the dam - it only affects those who wish to walk across the dam.
