Field Update - The bridge over Leadmine Brook is still under water. the field is still flooded to the extent that the radio rack is still submerged. There also appears to be a fair amount of debris at the north end as is usual after flooding.

Field Update - 9/6/21

Field Update - 9/8/21

Field Update - Good News/Bad News.

The field is clear. There is one tree and light debris in the pit area. The bad news is both setup benches are gone.

Some tree debris near the bridge and more on the road into the field. The gate will probably not open until the rangers get in to clear the road in. Very slippery mud near bridge may be washed out with today’s rain.

Overall good news considering the amount of water we had.

The staff of Thomaston Dam, Black Rock Lake & Northfield Brook Lake regretfully announce that Northfield Brook recreation area and the OHV area at Thomaston Dam have been closed for the season due to damage from remnants of Hurricane Ida. 

When will Leadmine Brook Rec Area be reopening?

We are still evaluating that area. Leadmine Brook may be closed as well for the season.
