Philpott Lake open during winter

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Philpott Lake wants to remind everyone that just because it is getting colder does not mean that there is nothing to do at Philpott Lake. The awe-inspiring beauty doesn’t end—it simply changes into a spellbound cool and frosty delight.
Philpott Park, Goose Point Park, Ryan’s Branch Park, Twin Ridge Park and the Tail Race Park are all open to visitor use throughout the winter. Dry camping is available on a limited first-come-first-served basis on nine sites at Goose Point Park.
Overnight camping is $20 for electric only (water available at community spigot). Twenty-one primitive campsites (boat access only) are available on Deer Island for $10 a night. Portable toilets are available in both campgrounds.
Philpott Park and the Visitor Center at 1058 Philpott Dam Road west of Bassett will be open on a daily basis. On Saturdays and Sundays there will be ranger talks and a variety of programs scheduled throughout the fall and winter seasons. Gather up your friends and family and get outside for weekends of fun at Philpott Lake.
