9/23/2011 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. -- The Air Force recreational facility at Lake Martin is now open for boating, camping, fishing and hiking. After receiving significant damage from an EF-4 tornado April 27.

Military members and their families can rent pontoon boats, john boats, paddle boats, kayaks and canoes from the facility to enjoy on the lake. Mobile homes and chalets are also available to rent for $60 a night. In addition, the recreational area also has RV sites with full hook-up for electricity and water, and sites for tent camping. A bath house is available complete with showers and a laundry room.

The beach area and fishing pier are also open to the public to enjoy, but the playground area is still closed.

According to Doug Hooks, recreational area manager, the water in Lake Martin has already begun to drop for the winter, but boats should still be available to rent for the next two weeks. The recreational areas and camping sites are available year round.
