Fish Walk

Paint Creek Lake Accessible Fishing Platform Rehab and Sidewalk Handrail

We are seeking public support and grants for rehabilitation of the existing accessible fishing ramp and to add a handrail on the sidewalk to the platform.

West Dam Parking Lot

Alum Creek Lake West Dam Parking Lot Improvements - More Parking and Restrooms

The West Dam Parking Lot at Alum Creek Lake is the only accessible way to reach the top of the dam.  Many visitors enjoy walking on the Dam Maintenance Rd.  Increased parking will allow more visitors to access this area safely.  Our dream is to add restrooms for visitor comfort as well.  Donate now to help support this project and many other improvements at Alum Creek Lake.  


Paint Creek Lake Information Center Remodel

The Paint Creek Lake Information Center needs updated information displays representing Corps History, Fish & Wildlife Habitats, Water Safety, Recreation Opportunities, and Local Natural and Cultural Resource History.
