Road conditions around the lake

The county road maintenance people are making good progress removing debris from the main roads around the lake. Unfortunately, a big washout at Line Creek on the north side near Cedar Crest Resort will probably not be repaired for a while. This means that the 300 cabins west of the washout, Lakeview Cottages and Camp Keola can only be reached by way of Big Creek.
Big Creek road will be very busy with garbage and delivery trucks competing with the usual traffic. Take extra care as you travel.

The lake is filling!

The lake has been rising a foot a day for a while, and is now fuller than it has been in the last year. Southern California Edison says that they will keep it full June-August as it always was before the drought. The west end gate is still closed just past the store, but May 1 the county resumes its maintenance role and it shouldn’t be long until the road is open.2016_0430LakeLevel
