Klondike Lake Reopens for 2021 — Popular for Water Skiing

Klondike Lake Opens for 2021 Season

Klondike Lake, located just north of the Town of Big Pine, Calif., is a popular water skiing and jet skiing spot just off Hwy 395. Water craft must be inspected prior to being allowed on the lake.

From May 28 to September 6 (Labor Day), Klondike Lake will be open for limited public boating use on weekend days only: Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 9 a.m. to sunset.

At this time spots are limited and on a first come, first served basis.

Precautions are being taken to guard against invasive mussels at this site, so all motorized watercraft will be inspected before being launched into Klondike Lake. Due to COVID-19, face coverings and social distancing are required. We will take additional measures during boat inspections to protect boat owners and LADWP employees as needed. Boat access to Klondike is free this summer period and subject to change for future seasons.

Access for motorized watercraft being transported by car, truck and/or trailer will be allowed for a one-hour period between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the gate entrance in order to accommodate inspections. After watercraft have been inspected and granted access, visitors can enjoy the lake for as long as they want that day, while practicing safe social distancing. Please note, recreational users with smaller, non-motorized watercraft that are not transported with a trailer can access the lake at any time.

Why oh why limit the hours? No mention of why in your article. This is very disappointing for those of us who like to enjoy the lake during the week when it’s less crowded. Not a good move. Bad decision. Unless I know of a good reason, this is ridiculous.
