  • R.D. Bailey Winter Boat Ramp Closed Temporarily

    The winter boat launch ramp at R.D. Bailey Lake in Justice, WV, is temporarily closed to the public. Recent heavy rainfall caused the second highest pool of record (1111.50 msl) and washed a significant amount of drift and debris into the lake, which accumulated at the base of the dam. The R.D. Bailey Dam holds back water during high water events to help reduce flooding downstream, but that also means crews must deal with the drift and debris that follows.
  • Grayson Lake Fishing and Nature Trail Closure

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntington District announces that the Fishing and Nature Trails at Grayson Lake, Ky. are closed until further notice. The recent ice storms that hit the region have caused numerous large trees to fall across the trails making them too dangerous to remain open to the public. The unsafe conditions regrettably require the immediate closure until the debris can be removed.  The public is asked to observe the closure as the Corps works to make the trails safe for use. It is not possible to know how long this will take. Once deemed safe, reopening will be announced through the media.
