The Swimming Lagoon is Back! and More Updates!

The Swimming Lagoon is back! And more exciting updates:

As we prepare for Summer 2021, we are excited to share a few announcements and reminders.

  • Camping is allowed by reservation only. During this time of year, our phones experience heavy traffic and we do our best to answer all calls. For the fastest and most convenient way to book a campsite, please visit our reservations page:
  • Annual permits are available on our website on the reservations page. For the quickest entry to the parks, purchase your annual permits online today.
  • Day use and boat launching remain open.
  • The Swimming Lagoon is now open for the season.

Our Visitor Center Lobby will reopen on Monday, May 3, 2021, with modified operations and COVID-19 restrictions. Again, for expedited reservations, please visit the reservation page of our website at:

As a reminder, California and Tuolumne County Public Health Departments continue to monitor the progress of COVID-19 and we continue to enforce CDC-recommended restrictions. We will notify the public as restrictions change and our operation adapts. Please make sure to follow all signage within the parks and facilities. We hope to see you all soon!

Thank You!
