Project Overview

The Tioga-Hammond Lakes project is unique in that it consists of two separate dams, one on the Tioga River and the other along Crooked Creek.  The lakes formed by both dams are joined by a gated connecting channel. The project was operationally complete in 1978.

Hammond Lake has 685 surface acres of water. The project includes the Ives Run Recreation Area with a campground, boat launches and overnight mooring for campers. Fishing, picnicking, swimming, various sport fields, and a volleyball court are close by. Visit our Display Gardens near the Visitor Information Center and learn about native trees, shrubs and flowers.

The Lambs Creek Recreation Area is a day use facility on the Tioga Lake, with 498 surface acres of water, located just a few miles north of Mansfield, Pennsylvania. Its secluded location offers a boater's paradise and great water-skiing opportunities. Picnic sites with horseshoe pits and a hiking or biking trail are close by.
