HIGHLAND SPRINGS RECREATION AREA CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Range and Rod and Gun Club Are Likewise Closed
Lake County, CA (March 2, 2023) – The Lake County Water Resources Department has determined Highland Springs Recreation Area will remain closed until further notice, due to potentially life-threatening conditions caused by storm damage. Please note, this closure includes the Range and Rod and Gun Club.
County work crews conducted an initial survey yesterday (3/1), and observed hundreds of downed trees and partially fallen limbs on recreational trails, parking areas and the disc golf course. With saturated soils, high winds, freezing temperatures and more precipitation anticipated, additional damage may occur.
District 4 Supervisor, Michael S. Green, was on site to observe damage brought by recent storms: “The disc golf course and picnic areas suffered little structural damage, but there are an unprecedented number of downed trees, ‘widow makers’ and other hazards,” Supervisor Green stated. “It will likely take weeks to fully assess the damage and bring in forestry crews and equipment to prepare the park for public use. We truly appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation.”
Highland Springs Recreation Area is owned by the Lake County Watershed Protection District and managed by the Lake County Water Resources Department. For more information, contact Water Resources at 707-263-2344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
