Change of Use for the Oak Shores Recreation Area at Lake Berryessa, Napa County, CA
The Bureau of Reclamation's Central California Area Office (CCAO) at Lake Berryessa will temporarily change public use at Oak Shores Day Use Area. After 50 years, concession contracts have expired and recreational opportunities provided at four closed resorts are no longer available. Until such time as new contracts can be awarded, Reclamation will provide a change from day use to overnight camping at this area. The North End of Oak Shores will be converted from day use only to overnight camping with up to 100 sites. Camping will be considered semi-primitive and will provide potable water spigots, restroom facilities, fire rings, picnic tables and some shade shelters. This change in use will serve to enhance public safety, provide additional public recreational services while providing for and protection of cultural and natural resources.
