Welcome to Pomme de Terre Lake

Follow CDC guidelines, even when outdoors. We are not staffed to maintain/clean lake & park areas. Be cautious about touching anything. Sanitize and wash often. Practice social distancing.
To protect against the further spread of the Coronavirus all USACE-managed campgrounds have begun an orderly shutdown and will be closed indefinitely. Individuals with paid reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Do not attempt to contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.
We are taking precautions and have closed our Visitor Center effective March 13, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide timely updates regarding other potential facility closures at our lakes on our websites and/or social sites.

The objective of natural resource management at Pomme de Terre Lake is to fully consider the recreation and resource potential that may be afforded on project property and to capitalize on that potential for the benefit of the wildlife and the enjoyment of the public on a sustained basis.
