Group Camp Dam is located 1.1 miles upstream from Pennsylvania Route 18 on Traverse Creek in Raccoon State Park. The dam is an earthfill embankment with central clay core approximately 20 feet high maximum and 220 feet long. The spillway, curved in plan view, is located at the left abutment of the dam and consists of a concrete paved approach, small in height ogee weir, and discharge chute channel. The outlet works for the dam consist of a control tower 8 feet out from shore which houses a 16 inch gate valve. The outlet conduit is a 36 inch corrigated metal pipe which is encased in 6 inches of reinforced concrete with four anti-seep collars. The dam was found to be in good overall condition at the time of inspection. Several minor items of remedial work should be performed by the owner as soon as practicable. The spillway is considered adequate.
