UPDATE: 5/14/20 3:15pm

News Release: Sly Park Recreation Area to Open for Day-Use and Boating for Local, In-County Residents


 UPDATE: 5/8/20 2:00pm

News Release:  EID Planning Structured Reopening for Sly Park Recreation Area


UPDATE: 4/30/20 9:30am

Sly Park Recreation Area is still CLOSED.

There may be some confusion about El Dorado County letting their mandates expire as of 4/30. These mandates are above and beyond the mandates set by the State of California. The State shelter in place still applies. Sly Park Recreation Area will open for limited use when CA State Parks have resumed similar operations. According to the governor this is still weeks away. As for what limited use will look like please continue checking this page and our main homepage as we will be opening in stages.


UPDATE: 4/2/20 11:30am

EID's/Sly Park Recreation Area will continue to remain closed to the public through April 30.

Please note that all of EID/Sly Park Recreation Area's day-use and camping areas are closing to the public until we receive further notice from the state, county and/or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The closure is to meet the CDC's guidelines to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

We are working on strategies to open the day-use facilities on a limited basis, but must be able to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff.

Camping reservations are not being accepted at this time, but we have set up an online form (linked below) if you would like to be notified when reservations resume. Please know that your email will only be used to notify you one time when reservations resume.
