Twin Lakes State Park is in the process of repairing the dams on Prince Edward and Goodwin Lakes. During this maintenance repair project the park and lakes will remain open; however, with the lakes having to be lowered, boat trailers may not be able to access the park’s boat launches.
If you are planning a trip to the park and are concerned about water levels, please contact the park at (434) 392-3435 or by email, to get an update on the water levels. The repair projects are estimated to be completed by the end of June, 2012.
