  • The upper reaches of the George B. Stevenson Reservoir at Sinnemahoning State Park will be dredged and the Brooks Run stream will be realigned in 2016 - 2017. Beginning May 1, 2016, the water level will be drawn down by 10 feet. This drawdown will impact the boat launch area, plus 100 yards of shoreline between the parking lot and dam and the northern reaches of the lake between Lushbaugh Run and the mooring area. It is anticipated that dredging will begin late-spring to early-summer and continue throughout the winter season. Once dredging operations begin, the area of impact, including the boat launch, mooring, eagle watch and parking areas will be closed to the public. Boating and fishing will not be permitted in the designated construction area. The roadway will also be closed from the Lake Day Use Area entrance to Goss Road and used as a staging area for dredge operations. More information will be posted as it becomes available. Call the park office at 814.647.8401 for more details and to be put on our email listing for current updates.
