SILVERWOOD LAKE, Calif. — Grab your suits and enjoy the last weekends of summer as Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area has officially reopened for swimming.
The announcement was made on Friday at about 11:00 am via the lake’s official Facebook Page.
According to the post, Blue-green algae toxicity levels have been tested and results indicate low levels on Sawpit Beach and not detected on Cleghorn Beach.
“Sawpit Beach will remain at a Caution advisory, so please stay away from any algae scum, do not drink or cook with the water, and any fish caught should be cleaned and filets rinsed with tap or bottled water before eaten.”
Silverwood Lake was formed by the 249-foot Cedar Springs Dam. At 3,350 feet, it is the highest reservoir in the State Water Project. The park features hiking trails, swimming beaches and designated areas for boating, water-skiing and fishing. The lake has trout, large mouth bass, catfish and bluegill. There is a marina with a launching ramp, boat and equipment rentals, and a store. The park has picnic areas, including three that can only be reached by boat. The lake attracts waterfowl, raptors and songbirds. Canada Geese and an occasional bald eagle can be seen in the area.
