PUBLIC NOTICE: The Town of Luray will begin draining Lake Arrowhead on Monday, November 1 for annual maintenance. The water level will drop about seven (7) feet. The Town will be conducting lakeside vegetation maintenance, maintenance and inspection of the emergency water intake pipe, and safety inspection of the dock. During the period of lowered lake levels, boats will not be able to launch from the dock or boat ramp. Following the maintenance work, the lake will naturally begin to fill to its normal level over the next few months. We apologize for the disruption of normal recreational use, but the maintenance is necessary for safe operation of the lake as a stormwater control and emergency water source for the Town of Luray. If you require any questions, please contact the Town’s Department of Parks & Recreation at (540) 843-0770.
