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

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: Corbin's Island area is prone to flooding due to close proximity to Raystown Dam. 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.
