In accordance with a May 12, 2020 update to the Sonoma County Health Order, Lake Sonoma will start opening parts of the park for public use. The plan is to open the Public Boat Ramp and Marina for lake surface use on Saturday, May 16, 9 a.m. The Visitor Center Parking lot will be open for vessel inspections only. At this time, all other recreation areas will remain closed.

Visitors are advised that all social distancing requirements in the health order must be observed in using Lake Sonoma. The opening of other areas will be done in phases and in consideration of the volume of visitors as a result of opening. Lake Sonoma reserves the right, in accordance with Sections 13 and 16 of the order, to re-close or not open areas if visitor use presents an unacceptable risk. Please follow the Health Order guidelines:

* Maintain a minimum six-foot distance from persons who are not part of the same household or living unit.
* Carry facial coverings at all times and wear them in all circumstances required by the Health Officer’s Order No. C19-07, including specifically if or when unable to maintain a six-foot distance from others (such as when passing on a trail).
* Do NOT use any facilities or equipment that are closed.
* Do NOT engage in sports or other activities that involve the use of shared equipment with individuals or groups outside of the person’s household.
