Island Park Recreation Area is the place to go for campers looking for lots of exciting water activities at Pine Flat Lake. The area has plenty of campsites plus two group sites and a day-use area for boaters. Pine Flat Lake spans 20 miles in length with 67 miles of shoreline. The lake, formed in 1954 with the completion of the Pine Flat Dam, is used for flood control and irrigation as well as a recreation oasis for the area. Wildlife spotting opportunities include bobcats and red-tailed hawks. Due to continuously changing lake levels, lakeside camping may not be available year round, and activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, jet skiing, and overall lake access may be limited at this recreation area. Please contact the Park Headquarters Office at 559-787-2589 for more information and current lake conditions. As of January 1, 2012, the campsite fee includes parking for two vehicles. Any additional vehicles parked within the campground, whether staying over night or just visiting, are required to pay an additional vehicle fee of $5.00 per day. These fees will be collected at the park by a Park Ranger or a Camp Host. Several campsites will not accommodate more than two vehicles. Entrance gates may be locked from 10 pm – 8 am. Vehicles may exit at anytime, however re-entry into the campground when the gates are locked is prohibited. Rattlesnakes frequent the area starting early spring through late summer.
