The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Loyalhanna Lake has temporarily closed the public boat launch at the Bush Recreation Area because of high water and unsafe conditions. This is due to Loyalhanna Dam storing excess run-off to reduce the possibility of downstream flooding. The camping and day-use areas will remain open at this time. For information regarding the re-opening of the boat launch and general lake conditions call 724-639-3785 or 724-639-9013.
