AGUA FRIA CONSERVATION AREA [NEW]

  • Water levels are low and require about a two (2) mile hike down from the parking lot along the riverbed to reach the lake.

TEMPORARY CLOSURES: May be implemented when capacity levels are met and remain in effect until 4 p.m. Temporary closures at the lake during the summer months are not uncommon due to high-volume traffic, high water levels, and limited shoreline availability for parking/day-use recreational activities.
