Dam West Beach, boat ramps reopen


Shelbyville Daily Union

---- — Lake Shelbyville - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville is excited to announce all regular boat ramps and Dam West Beach are now available for use. The boat ramps and beach were temporarily closed due to high water, but a recent break in rainfall has allowed them to reopen.

In celebration of the beach reopening, we will be hosting a water safety carnival on Saturday, July 27 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Children and adults of ages all are welcome to attend. The beach fee will be waived for the entire day to allow all beach users a chance to come out and enjoy the free games and activities. Activities include snow cones, inflatable water slide, inflatable obstacle course, water safety games, water balloon toss, and an appearance from Bobber the Water Safety Dog.

The Lake Shelbyville staff is working diligently to reopen other facilities in the near future.
