Corps announces limited access to recreation areas during college championships

Published Oct. 27, 2014

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tioga-Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes will allow limited access to designated areas of Lambs Creek recreation area Nov. 8 due to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) cross-country championships.

Hunters are advised that some areas will be closed to hunting only on the day of the event and will be clearly marked with signage.

Pheasant hunters will be able to take advantage of the Pennsylvania Game Commission pheasant stockings along the Ives Run Railroad Grade at Hammond Lake and along the Moccasin Trail at Cowanesque Lake. Pheasant stockings will remain unchanged at Lambs Creek, and should provide rewarding hunting opportunities as always.

The Corps asks everyone using the recreation area that day to respect the areas utilized for the cross country event. If you have any questions or for more information, contact the Tioga-Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes project at 570-835-5281.
