Reclamation Expects a Busy Recreation Season This Summer at Lake Berryessa
Bureau of Reclamation
NAPA, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation’s Lake Berryessa is a beautiful destination and safe for swimming, boating, and fishing for the whole family. The public is encouraged to come out and enjoy the great outdoors at the lake this summer.

Lake Berryessa is full after 11 years of decreasing water levels and several years of drought in California. With temperatures averaging in the mid-70s and only expected to increase, the lake is a great option for cooling off on a hot summer’s day with the family. The public is encouraged to take advantage of the many recreational opportunities happening at Lake Berryessa this summer, including “Meet a Park Ranger at Monticello Dam” every Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 2 p.m. now through Labor Day, as well as the World Environment Day on Sunday, June 4 near Markley Cove Resort. Details for these events and more can be found at
