Main Water Line Break -- Restrooms and Water Faucets Out of Order   

Due to a break in the main water line, the restrooms are currently closed at Hanging Rock State Park.  Drinking water is also unavailable.  Portable toilets are located in the parking lots at the Visitor Center and at the Lake, but we highly advise visitors to bring plenty of drinking water with them until we can complete repairs.  This message will be removed when the water is restored.
