The lake had been temporarily closed pending the hiring of a new lake manager. The 184-acre lake is located in the Conecuh National Forest east of Brewton, Ala., off County Road 11.
The lake offers public restrooms, a covered fishing pier, a boat ramp and a covered pavilion. The concession has bait, fishing tackle and snacks available at the lake. In addition to a valid fishing license, a daily $3 fishing permit is required.
