May 27, 2021 – Just in time for Memorial day weekend, Eldorado irrigation District EID, has opened several feature recreational sites including the Caple Lake and Silver Lake boat ramps off HWY 88 and Carson Pass.

EID’s Recreation division wants everyone to have fun while enjoying the outdoors this summer season. Don’t ruin the fun: stay safe, stay informed of regulations, current conditions, accessibility, and fire status. Many of our recreation facilities do not have cell reception, so have a plan and access to an offline or paper map. Be sure you know before you go!

Contact EID Recreation at or by phone at (530) 295-6824. Visit our recreation website or Facebook pages at Sly Park Recreation AreaCaples Lake (off Hwy. 88), Forebay Reservoir, and Silver Lake West (off Hwy. 88).
