Raystown Lake Announces Road Opening for the Early Youth and Regular Spring Gobbler Season

Published April 21, 2015

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Raystown Lake announces the opening of The High Germany Road (Gate 28 – Nancy’sCamp Service Road) beginning Saturday, April 25th through Saturday, May 30th for Spring Gobbler hunting. 

The Corps may close or choose not to open this road depending on weather, road conditions or special activities such as logging operations. Other recreational users may also use this road for vehicle access during these periods since spring is a time of year when many other visitors enjoy the woods including trail hikers, mountain bikers and nature observers.  The 32-mile Allegrippis Trails System will remain open throughout the entire season. The Corps urges you to please be aware of your surroundings and always positively identify your target.

There is no off-season maintenance on this roadway; vehicle operators will be traveling at their own risk and it is important to remember that all Pennsylvania Game Commission and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regulations apply.
