COVID-19 UPDATE: AS OF 4/1/2020


Due to governmental restrictions and in light of cases occurring near Lake Nacimiento Resort, the decision has been made to completely close the operations.  The public resort ramp will be closed until further notice.  A barricade will be placed at the entrance and essential personnel will continue to check the grounds daily.  Please understand this is a decision that has not been made lightly and has been set in place to ensure the safety of our patrons and our staff.  We will continue to update all of you as adjustments are made and hope, like all of you, that the spread of this virus and these trying times subside soon.  Rest assured that we are doing all we can and that we will reopen as soon as possible.

During this closure our staff will be very minimal, if you have questions about future reservations etc.. please leave a message at (805)237-4924 Option #1 and we will return your call as soon as possible.

I completely understand your frustrations, these precautions are necessary for the safety of our guests, employees, and our local communities. 

Please stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you soon!
