In an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) infection and spread, and in concurrence with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States Army Corps of Engineers at Mount Morris Dam and Recreation Area has closed the William B. Hoyt II Visitor Center, and all public programs, including special events and tours of the dam are cancelled until further notice.  Hiking trails, playgrounds, outdoor restroom and picnic areas remain open at this time.  We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate this public crisis together.
