The Howell Run Boat Launch (located off WV State Route 46) consists of a wide two-lane concrete ramp, with a floating dock for temporary loading and unloading of boats. The large paved parking area insures plenty of parking spaces and a comfort facility is available for the boater's convenience. Motorboats, sailboats, and other watercraft frequent the lake with water skiing and fishing being the most popular pastime. A vault toilet comfort station is available at the launch facility. Both the comfort station and the launch ramp are lighted at night. There is no longer a fee to launch any type of boat at the Howell Run Boat Launch. The Howell Run Boat Launch will open for the 2019 recreation season on April 1, 2019.
