PLank Yard set too close

The Plank Yard Access
Area, located near Byrdstown,
will be closed beginning June
1, 2009 and will remain closed
for the duration of the summer
recreation season. The
Plank Yard contains both a
primitive camp site and boat
launching ramp that will be
affected by this site closure.
This closure is necessary for
the on-site construction of a
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Dale Hollow Lake
barge.
The access road leading to
the ramp will be gated and
closed to vehicular traffic near
the Corps’ boundary line.
Vehicular traffic on the
Plank Yard Road is extremely
discouraged! The road width
is narrow and there will be no
turn-around point at the gate.
Nearby alternative boat
launching ramps include
Obey River Day Use Area,
Sunset Marina, Star Point
Marina, and Cove Creek.
Updates as to the status of
closure and reopening information
will be posted on the
Dale Hollow Lake Fishing Information
page located at
http://www.lrn.usace.army.mi
l/pao/lakeinfo/DAL.htm.
For additional information
contact the Dale Hollow Lake
Resource Manager’s Office at
931-243-3136 Monday
through Friday from 7:30 a.m.
until 4:00 p.m.
