  • Badin Lake Rec Facilities Still Opened but Without Power

    After heavy rain and strong winds on the Uwharrie National Forest, recreational facilities in the Badin Lake area have been left without power. These facilities remain open. Flintlock Valley Shooting Range is closed at this time. Crews are currently clearing debris and trees from roads. Trails on the Uwharrie are opened but have not been assessed, so fallen trees and other debris may block paths. Be mindful and make your own safety a priority when visiting the forest after a storm.
