November 28, 2013 (Lakeside) – While your east coast relatives are shivering in snowstorms, you can savor the warmth of our California sunshine by enjoying the great outdoors over the holiday season.  Thankfully,  Lake Jennings will be open throughout the Thanksgiving weekend, including Thanksgiving Day. Heads up, students! The lake will also be open during winter break, closing only on Christmas Day, December 25.

Lake Jennings is a popular site for camping, fishing, hiking and picnicking. The campground is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.  Camping reservations can be made online at  Now,  the lake is also available for rental for special events.

Owned by Helix Water District, the lake faces possible closure unless revenues can be increased, so by supporting the lake with camping, fishing or event rental fees you are also helping to keep this beautiful resource open for all area residents.

Looking ahead to January and February 2014, the lake will also be open on Martin Luther King Day and President's Day.
