Please note that in an effort to provide ready boating access to Loch Raven Reservoir, we must limit the parking and activities at fishing center to that of its patrons. Therefore no picnicking, shoreline fishing or other "non-fishing center" related activities are permitted on the shore. Those wishing to pursue other recreational activities in and around the reservoir property are encouraged to park on Loch Raven Drive near Morgan Mill and Providence Roads for dawn to dusk parking being sure to adhere to all posted parking regulations.
For more information regarding recreational activities in other areas of the reservoir property please call Baltimore City Bureau of Water and Waster Water at 410-795-6150.
