Lake Camanche is the perfect place to bring or store your boat, year round. The western end of the lake, with its wide-open geography, is perfect for personal watercraft, wakeboards, water skis, and other towables. Marinas are located on North and South Shores with eight-lane launch ramps, berthing, storage and rental boats.
Covered slips are available on a short-term and annual basis. Camanche features a 5 mph limit within 200 feet of shore, providing quiet beaches for sunbathing and solitude.
The eastern end of the lake, east of the narrows, is reserved for a quieter boating or fishing experience. No personal motorize watercraft or towables are allowed in this area and speed restrictions are imposed.
NO LIFEGUARDS ARE ON DUTY. ALL ON-WATER ACTIVITIES ARE DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. You are responsible for knowing the rules and regulations of Lake Camanche.
A complete list of the rules and regulations are available at Water Activity Regulations (pdf). General stores on each shore are stocked with bait and tackle, snacks, groceries, beverages, fishing and camping supplies.
Due to the growing presence of the invasive Zebra and Quagga mussel in California, we will be conducting mandatory boat inspections and interviews prior to entry. Please note that all out of state boats and prohibited California counties are subject to a full decontamination process prior to launching at Lake Camanche .
