Corbin's Island Picnic Shelter

Located along shady banks approximately 1/2 mile below the dam, Corbin's Island (not really an island) offers a quite, less crowded atmosphere.  Nearby access to the cool, flowing waters of the Raystown Branch makes this shelter a great place to picnic, fish and float the river all in one day.

  • Mature trees tower over Corbin's Island.Open year-round, no winter maintenance
  • Approximately 10 tables
  • 80 person capacity
  • Electrical outlets & lights
  • Double pedestal grill
  • Vault Restroom (pit toilets)
  • No drinking water access
  • Handicap accessible (restroom access limited)
  • Small craft boat launch (learn more here)
  • Additional picnic tables & grills in area

Shallow Water:  The ramp launches into only 2-4 feet of water.  The Raystown Branch remains relatively shallow and accessible only by shallow draft vessels.

Flooding: Because Corbin's Island is only 1/2 mile from Raystown Dam this area is prone to flooding.  A siren alerts visitors to spillway operations and visitors should be prepared for changes in current and water level.  For information regarding spillway outflow, click here.

Directions
