The construction work that has been taking place over the past few years at Salamonie Lake is in its final stages of completion. This work was performed to prevent further erosion in the retreat channel and to build a service road for future maintenance needs. The service road will not be open to the public for vehicular traffic, although it will be open for pedestrian & bicyle traffic. The public will be able to access the road from the Salamonie State Forest parking area at Homney Ridge and roadside parking where allowed. The new staircase on the East side will provide a safer path down from the parking lot of the tailwater recreation area.
