    Overview

    East Lynn Lake Shelters are perfect for gathering friends and family for a fun-filled day of picnicking. Choose from four lakeside shelters along the northern tip of East Lynn Lake, a 1,005-acre lake just 35 miles south of Huntington, WV.

    East Lynn Lake is a man-made reservoir created in 1938 as part of an Ohio River Basin Flood management program. Today, it's a beloved outdoor recreation area for water sports and hiking.

    Natural Features:

    Shelters are situated on various terrains along the 12-mile long reservoir in the Ohio River Valley. Shelter 1 and 2 boast scenic overlooks at the top of the dam. Shelter 3 is nestled along a quiet creek-front, and shelter 4 is perched right on the lake with a convenient boat ramp.

    Recreation:

    The reservoir is big enough that there are both wake-permitted and no wake zones. Visitors interested in water skiing can have their fun, while fisherman populate the calmer portions of the lake. More interested in the latter? East Lynn Lake boasts 29 species of native West Virginian fish, including musky, crappy, and bass. Outdoorsmen with a competitive edge can participate in bass tournaments held April through October.

    Facilities:

    Great for large groups and families. Each shelter seats up to 100 people, with nearby playgrounds and grassy fields. Shelter 1 and 2 have basketball courts as well.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Adjacent to the shelters is the East Lynn Lake Wildlife Management Area, which offers 25,000 acres of public land used for hunting, fishing and hiking.
