Description: Loch Lomond is open from March 1 through Labor Day and then Saturdays and Sundays though mid October of each year. Some park activities may be limited later in the season if drought conditions persist. Entrance fees are $6 per vehicle.

The Recreation Section operates and maintains Loch Lomond Recreation Area, and also provides a security presence on Water Department owned watershed property.

The Loch Lomond Recreation Area, including the scenic 175 acre Loch Lomond Reservoir, provides the public with fishing, picnicking, boating and hiking opportunities from March 1 to mid October when water levels allow. Water Department Rangers coordinate the operation of the park store and boat rental and provide public service in the forms of education, municipal code enforcement, and first aid. A staff of Ranger Assistants and seasonal Recreation Area Aides assist the Rangers in maintaining the Recreation Area, collecting fees, and operating the park store.

Due to the concern regarding contamination of the lake with aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian mussels, private boat launching will be restricted to boats that are stored at Loch Lomond for the season. There is a $25.00 inspection/decontamination fee as well as a $200 annual storage fee. Entrance and launch fees still apply. Annual passes are also available for sale. Space is limited to about 100 boats. (Boat trailer space is not currently available.) Park staff can be contacted by calling 831-335-7424 for more information. The lake has a substantial boat rental fleet that is available on a first come, first served basis.
