Have you ever wanted a good look at the dam that impounds the waters of the Stanislaus River? Here’s your opportunity! This fall the gate to the dam overlook will open for two weekend days. A park ranger will be available on site to answer questions about the dam and history of New Melones Lake. The overlook is off of Old Melones Dam Rd/Peoria Flat Rd, which can be reached by taking O’byrnes Ferry Rd from Hwy 108. Please call 209-536-9094 ext 233 if additional directions are needed.

All activities are free and suitable for all ages, although children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. A water bottle and sunscreen are also recommended.
