SPRING-EARLY SUMMER
MID SUMMER--LAKE GRASSES
BEGIN TO GROW
LATE SUMMER IN DROUGHT YEARS
Lake Vera is a small,
private reservoir of 15
acres and is very
sensitive to conditions
in California and the
Sierras.  The lake is a
primarily a snow melt
lake, low snow pack and
low rainfall can leave
our lake quite low
towards the end of the
summer.  In most cases
it is still suitable for
canoeing, but does not
look as pretty.  We are
located about 3 miles
from the Yuba River
along Hwy 49 with
multiple family swimming
areas as well as Scotts
Flat Reservoir about 5
miles away on Hwy 20.

If having the lake in
perfect condition is a
deal breaker for you,
then consider having
your event earlier in the
summer.  While there is
still a lot to do at  
Watanda Lodge, the lake
is out of our control.

The Lake is drained from
Nov 1-April 1 depending
on weather conditions.
