Pike County Lake

722 County Road 2224 | Troy, Alabama 36081 | 334-674-2480

Pike County Lake originally opened in 1951, but time took its toll on the dam and the property, and it closed in 2012 for repairs.

In June of 2016, the lake reopened after a major renovation partnership between the City of Troy, and the State of Alabama Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

The lake is now open six days a week, 12 months out of the year, closed on Wednesday and some holidays.
