How it Started
What has been known as the “Old Town” area of Celina for decades is where much of the “town” was once situated, on the banks of the Cumberland and Obey. Due to flooding issues, town was eventually moved to higher ground. As a result of flood control, those problems are now a distant memory.

The dam is located roughly three miles east of Celina, while the junction of the Obey and Cumberland rivers is a few miles downstream. In recent years, the Obey has proven to be a popular canoeing and kayaking stream, while both sports are also enjoyed on the lake.
