Post Date:10/13/2011 5:30 PM

The Lake Elsinore Recreation Area & Campground  overlooks the beautiful waters of Lake Elsinore and the picturesque Ortega Mountains.  A six-lane, 400 foot boat launch, 260 parking spaces, and two 200-foot long floating docks are currently being constructed at the site, located at 32040 Riverside Drive. The new ramp will enable boats to be launched at water levels 5 to 10 feet lower than the Seaport Boat Launch off Lakeshore Drive, and will remain usable year round. In addition to the launch, the project includes the creation of an adjacent picnic area, fish-cleaning station, barrier-enclosed wading pool and restrooms.

This project is being funded with a grant from the State Department of Boating & Waterways, Redevelopment funds and money earmarked for park improvements. The $8.3 million investment will pave the way for development of the City Campground and the City expects to issue an RFP for campground improvements in the near future. This development will benefit everyone coming to enjoy the bountiful recreation offerings of Lake Elsinore and will bring new tourism dollars into the City for years to come.
