New Shelter Reservation Procedure  Fishtrap Lake no longer takes shelter reservations at the project office. Persons wanting to reserve a group picnic shelter for the 2006 recreation season in the Dam Site and Grapevine Recreation Areas, at Fishtrap Lake, can do so by calling a toll free number 877-444-6777 or visiting There is no cost to use this system, however, if you need to make a change or cancellation there will be a service fee charged at that time. Credit cards, certified checks, bank checks or money orders can be used for payment. Personal checks will not be accepted. When calling or visiting the website make sure to mention or note that the shelter you want to reserve is a "day use facility" and NOT a campground. Each person that makes a reservation will receive a confirmation letter in the mail that will include information concerning changes or cancellations to a reservation. An additional feature of this system will allow you to make your reservation for future years 360 days in advance of the date you want to reserve the shelter.

Shelters #1 & #2 are located at the below Dam Site area. Shelter #3 is located at the Grapevine recreation area. All shelters have a $50.00 rental fee.
