There are many hidden nooks and cranies to explore with tons of wold life.  We see eagles and hawks, deer, foxes and tons of fish.  The reservoir is filled by the gunpowder river that flows down from Pennsylvania and has another damn called the Prettyboy Reservoir.  From Loche Raven Damn the river flows down to the “smaller” damn = (I rode my bike across it) and from here it flows to the Chesapeake BAy From my childhood we have ebn canoeing and kayaking the lake and river.
