The reservoir water level remains high, as result of installation of the spillway flash boards! And big thank you to Orland Water Users and Bureau of Reclamation for their help making this happen!
We have installed ten new concrete vault toilets with solar lighting throughout the park and are planning to install a disc golf course on the Ladoga side of the park later this year. We have also received word from the Department of Waterways; funding for the planning phase of a new boat ramp (located on Rattlesnake Point) has been included in the most recent version of the State Budget. We remain optimistic that the funding will ultimately be included in the finalized State Budget!
