Amador County Lodging Tax Increase
Dear guests, the Amador County lodging tax will increase from 6% to 10%, effective December 1st, 2012. We apologize for the inconvenience. — The Administration of Lake Camanche Recreation
Please Note: The ban on boats registered in Santa Clara County, put in place as a protective measure against the invasive Quagga and Zebra Mussel after Zebra Mussels were discovered in adjacent San Benito County, has been lifted as part of a policy change by EBMUD. Both lakes, managed by EBMUD, will now accept vessels registered in Santa Clara County pending a successful vessel inspection. This change is the result of research done to determine the extent of the current infestation in Northern California as well as the vulnerability of Pardee and Camanche to the threats posed by invasive mussels. No further discoveries of mussels have been made in the region, and Santa Clara County agencies have implemented an active prevention program in their reservoirs. Additionally, the reservoirs in the foothills (Pardee and Camanche) have been determined to be less vulnerable to mussel infestation than are the reservoirs in the East Bay.
Vessel owners will be asked to complete a vessel history survey and to present the vessel in a clean and dry condition. The condition of the vessel will be determined by a physical inspection. In order to help prevent the spread of all aquatic invasive species, the “Clean and Dry, Inside and Out” requirement for all vessel owners will be enforced again this year and into the future.
For more information, including detailed descriptions of the vessel history survey and the physical inspection or to learn more about invasive mussels, please visit EBMUD's website.
We look forward to making Lake Camanche and Lake Pardee a fun and safe part of your boating season.
The Camanche Recreation Area is a public facility operated by agreement with the East Bay Municipal Utility District by the California Parks Company.
