It's closed due to a nest of cotton mouths. Someone got bitten several times a couple of weeks ago.

Not saying that the spillway shouldn't be closed but I doubt it is, call and ask them. Woodscreek should be closed its 100 times worse than the spillway. I've seen people at both places late at night having sex, doing drugs, selling drugs, you name it I've seen it at either place.
Side note no joke does anyone remember about I guess 15 years ago, the I think male torso they found in Laurel Lake? Did they ever find the rest of it or figure out what happened? I don't remember.

Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a missing person at Holly Bay at Laurel Lake. They say 32-year-old Clarence Holmes was driving his pontoon around the lake Thursday, before storms hit, to help others moor their houseboats.

Thursday night, around 9:00pm, Holmes boat was found off Marshes Branch, 13 miles west of London, near a small island on Laurel Lake. He was last seen around 3:00pm. Deputies say Holmes personal belongings were in the pontoon.

The Sheriff's Office says waves on the lake were reported to be 7 to 8 foot tall during Thursday's storm.

Rescue crews looked for Holmes until late Thursday night, but had to suspended the search due to darkness. They resumed the hunt for Holmes Friday morning.

Don't know if the spillway is closed but there is this.
