Cachuma Institutes Mandatory 14 day Quarantine AND Boat Inspections
Santa Barbara County Parks
Immediate Notice as of December 27, 2013: Temporary Mandatory Boat Launch Quarantine Requirement at Cachuma Lake

This notice affects visitors planning to bring trailered watercraft and kayaks/canoes to Cachuma Lake. This temporary measure was taken due to the quagga or zebra mussel infestation discovered recently at a nearby lake in Ventura county. Beginning Friday, December 27, 2013, all vessels seeking to launch at Cachuma Lake will be subject to a TEMPORARY MANDATORY 2-WEEK QUARANTINE. There will be two exceptions: 1) Boats with existing, intact boat launch security tags from Cachuma Lake will be allowed to launch without a 2-week quarantine, and 2) Canoes and kayaks will be allowed to launch after passing the inspection program AND after receiving an additional power wash as boats do.
