WHEN IS A PERMIT NEEDED?
Property usage permits are required when any organized or planned event taking place on county property is sponsored by a publicly recognized organization (profit or non-profit), person, business or other entity which invites, advertises or seeks entrants in excess of 25 participants.
WHEN IS A PERMIT NOT NEEDED?
As a general rule a permit is not required when family groups (weddings, reunions, including school reunions) and other similar groups, not associated with an established organization, hold an event where there are less than 100 participants. Contact Public Services at 707-262-1618 to determine if your planned event qualifies.

The County is in the process of developing a first-ever countywide parks, recreation, and trails master plan. This plan will provide a roadmap for improvements, maintenance, and operations, with a goal to improve the value, visibility, and availability of these important assets and guide ongoing improvements and decisions.
in 2023 the city of Lakeport, the city of Clearlake, and the County of Lake approved the creation of a new joint powers authority, the Lake County Recreation Agency, dedicated to improving recreational opportunities in Lake County, CA. Stay tuned for more information as this new agency progresses!
We want to acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the indigenous Pomo people, who were the earliest inhabitants of Lake County, California. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the corresponding tribes that continue to bring light to their ancient heritage.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE LAND?
For many Native groups and cultures, acknowledging the land has been a long-standing habit. Land recognition is a powerful way for non-Indigenous communities to recognize and honor the Indigenous Peoples of the land on which we work and live. A straightforward strategy for preventing the suppression of Indigenous histories and encouraging the honoring of their communities.
