There will be 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 fields and forests around Tioga-Hammond & Cowanesque Lakes are popular destinations for hunters. This area abounds with both large and small game species native to the US Eastern Hardwood Forests.  Hunting is permitted on project lands except in posted public use areas.  A Pennsylvania hunting license is required and hunters are subject to game laws.  In addition to the public lands at Tioga-Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes, Pennsylvania Game Lands 37 is located between and adjacent to Tioga-Hammond Lakes.

Hunters are reminded to be on the look out for hikers using the trails around the projects.
