Can the weather make up its mind?

Temperatures are expected to hit triple digits Tuesday, May 23, but will begin to tick downward Wednesday (when the high is expected to be 91 degrees) before hitting moderate levels Thursday and Friday (when highs are forecast in the mid-70s).

Then its back up the thermometer.

The heat will begin to climb Saturday, hitting a high of 80. Sunday is expected to peak at 89, and Monday is forecast to hit a toasty 95 degrees.

So, how can you cool down?

Well, libraries and community centers may offer respite from the heat. Though they aren’t officially deemed cooling centers — which in Riverside County kicks in when a heat warning is issued.

But it’s the traditional start of summer, so perhaps waterparks might be your most immediate thought.

October 1, 2021 update Summer is over…… We saw a huge surge in vis...itation this summer vs. previous years. As we transition into Fall, the park sees less visitation which is a perfect time to bring your family for the day or night. To make camping reservations please visit We are open daily from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. All vessels must be off the water by 7:30 PM. The Bernasconi entrance is open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM daily. Lake temperature is 73-76 degrees We have several park programs going on. Please check the events tab for special programs. Boating: You no longer have to worry about boat closure as most weekends only fill about half our parking lots. If you are a boater please make sure you vessel is cleaned, dried and drained. It can not be wet! Boating rules: If you are new to Lake Perris please read the rules and regulations at the top of the launch ramp. We have a specific direction of travel and we do not allow spray downs 360,s and many other dangerous activities. This is a small, heavily congested lake and every operator needs to know which way to go otherwise everyone is at risk of a vessel collision. Also if you are under the age of 40 you are required to have a CA Boater Card in your possession. If you are stopped for a lake violation and do not have this card you will be issued a citation and you will be asked to take your vessel off the lake. Remember, all vessels must be off the lake and on the trailer by 7:30 PM. At the ramps, please have a little courtesy. Only enter the ramps if you are ready to launch or retrieve a vessel. Once you retrieve your vessel, drive it out to the back of the parking lot where there are courtesy wipe down areas. On the docks, your vessel should only by docked if you are actively loading or unloading passengers or retrieving a tow vehicle. No vessel should be docked longer than 10-15 minutes. There is no fishing on the docks. Swimming: We will have at least one swimming beach open daily but our lifeguard service has ended. Swim at your own risk and do not let children swim unsupervised. Please leave all inflatables, rafts, unicorns, balls, floats ect in the car. Only USCG lifejackets are allowed in the swim area. Marina Update: We do not have a store or marina. We do not rent boats or jet skis. We are very close to signing a 30 year contract with a new concessionaire which will eventually trigger the construction of a new Marina and docks. Bring everything with you (food, water, bait ect). We do sell firewood at the campground.See More

Summer in the Inland Empire means sunny days. Really sunny. OK, hot.

Day after day of high temperatures in the 90s or 100s is not uncommon. At times like that, nothing is more delightful than a dip in a cool pool.

But not everyone has a pool in their backyard or lives in a condo complex, or has the time or inclination to trek to the big pond lapping the coast. Nor does everyone enjoy being bashed about by the surf.

The solution? Go jump in a lake.

Fortunately, the region boasts a number of lakes that allow folks to wade in the water, swim, paddleboard, ski or just make a splash. And, thanks to bountiful precipitation during the rainy season, water quality is generally healthy.

Here’s a few of the lakes offering opportunities to chill:


Where: Visitor Center, 630 Bartlett Road, Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains.

What: Wading and swimming is allowed anywhere around the lake within 50 feet of the shore all day at no charge (except at private and commercial venue)s. With 22 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of opportunities.

Available: Paddleboarding, kayaking, water skiing, wakeboarding and parasailing are popular activities.

Notable: Captain John’s Fawn Harbor and Marina features the Tarzan Boat, a jungle-themed floating water park with trampolines, a water slide, jumps and a Tarzan swing. Rates start at $25 per hour. The harbor is located at 9369 North Shore Drive #350 in Fawnskin.

Info: 800-424-4232 or; Tarzan Boat can be reached at 909-866-6478 or


Where: Highway 138, 11 miles east of Interstate 15

What: Silverwood Lake, with 13 miles of shoreline, is the centerpiece of a state recreational area operated by the California Department of Parks and Recreation. The lake is the highest reservoir on the State Water Project.

Available: For a $10 day-use fee, visitors can frolic in the water at the lake’s swimming beach from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Water skiing, paddleboarding and kayaking are permitted.

Notable: Unlike last year when the lake was invaded by toxic blue-green algae, the water is in good shape after ample rain over the winter.

Info: 760-389-2281 or


Where: 17801 Lake Perris Drive, Perris

What: Like Silverwood Lake, Lake Perris also is within a state recreational area accessible with a $10 fee and the park is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the summer.

Available: Folks can jump in the water at two beaches and engage in a variety of activities such as waterskiing, scuba diving and snorkeling. A drinking water reservoir, Lake Perris’ water quality is typically good.

Notable: New this year is the Lake Perris Waterpark, featuring colorful, floating play structures. It is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and costs $15 per adult, $10 for children from 8 through 17 years old, and $5 for children 7 years old and under.

Info: 951-940-5600 or; the water park can be reached at 951-287-4990 or


Where: 56570 State Highway 74, Mountain Center

What: Though fishing is the dominant activity at Lake Hemet, a water storage reservoir in the San Jacinto Mountains, it offers a water park, including a swim beach, that is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Monday.

Notable: Splashing Eagle Waterpark includes 25 different water play structures including climbing walls, a giant waterslide, a giant trampoline and an inflatable teeter-totter that challenges riders to hang on without being flipped into the water. The beach is a fenced-off designated area including a shallow splash zone for young children and a deeper play area for older kids and adults. Admission to the beach is $10, while entrance to both the beach and the waterpark is $15. Both are in addition to the day-use entrance fee of $15 per vehicle.

Info: 951-659-2680 or


Where: Beach access from Lakeshore Drive and Riverside Drive in Lake Elsinore; Grand Avenue in Lakeland Village.

What: The largest of the natural freshwater bodies in the region, Lake Elsinore features an expansive sandy beach offering free access to waders, swimmers, paddleboarders and kayakers.

Available: Water skiers and jet skiers can embark from the city-owned La Laguna Resort and Boat Launch, 32040 Riverside Drive, as well as other private commercial marinas around the lake. The resort, which charges day-use fees starting at $10 per vehicle and charges $10 per launch, also features a beach popular among those wanting to romp in the water.

Notable: While Lake Elsinore’s water has a green cast due to the presence of algae, lake officials say it is currently safe for body contact and they are continuing to monitor toxicity levels. Those who go in the water are cautioned to avoid algae patches.

IInfo: includes information on all beaches and venues; La Laguna can be contacted at 951-471-1212.

Water lake park perris

Lake Perris

Artificial lake in California, U.S.

Lake Perris is an artificial lake completed in 1973.[1] It is the southern terminus of the California State Water Project, situated in a mountain-rimmed valley between Moreno Valley and Perris, in what is now the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. The park offers a variety of recreational activities. Because of this and the lake's proximity to major population centers, it is very crowded during the summer months.

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has issued a safe eating advisory for any fish caught in the Lake Perris due to elevated levels of mercury and PCBs.[2]

Ya'i Heki' Regional Indian Museum[edit]

The Ya'i Heki' Regional Indian Museum tells the story of the monumental State Water Project and focuses on the culture and history of the native peoples of the southern California desert region.


Lake Perris is 1,560 feet (480 m) above sea level and is ringed by hills and small mountains. It impounds 131,400 acre-feet (162,100,000 m3) of water behind a 2-mile (3 km) long, 128 foot (39 m) tall, chevron-shaped earthfill dam. The untended areas of Lake Perris are somewhat rocky and barren.

An artificial reef exists on the lake floor made of old tires. The reef was created to provide a habitat for fish.[1]

Flora and fauna[edit]

The predominant plant community, coastal sage scrub, is host to a variety of birds and wildlife. Mule deer, roadrunners, bobcats, coyotes, rabbits, quail, gopher snakes and rattlesnakes may sometimes be seen by day, though they tend to shy away from people. More frequently seen are a wide variety of lizards, rodents, water fowl, and birds of prey. Beautiful displays of wildflowers occur during the rainy season, generally November through April.

The coastal sage scrub community is predominant on the south-facing slopes of the Russell mountains and Bernasconi hills and is characterized by shrubby plants including desert encelia, brittlebush, sagebrush, black sage, white sage, buckwheat, and cacti. Conditions are somewhat shadier on hillsides that face north or northwest so that chaparral plants such as chamise, penstemon, and poison oak are found.

Remnants of the original perennial grasses that once flourished in this region can still be found in the flat interior of the park surrounding the lake, but the majority of plants that now make up the valley grassland community (including Russian thistle) were imported from Europe by early settlers. Riparian areas near springs and seeps, and on east and south lakes include willows, cattails, elderberry and nettles.

More than a hundred species of birds have been spotted at Lake Perris. Many are migratory, and stop at the park briefly during their travels, while others make their permanent residence here. Meadowlarks, loggerhead shrikes, roadrunners, California thrashers, quail, wrens, sparrows, hummingbirds, golden eagles, several varieties of hawks, ospreys, and even bald eagles may be seen. Many varieties of waterfowl use the lake including pintails, widgeons, teals, mallards, shovelers, various geese, and sometimes tundra swans and pelicans. black-necked stilts, avocets, killdeer, willets, kingfishers, egrets, and herons are attracted to the water's edge.

The lake has become a hotspot for freshwater game fishing. Largemouth bass, spotted bass, bluegill, rainbow trout, channel catfish, black crappie, red ear sunfish and carp are all present in the lake. As the climate is a warm one, the California Department of Fish and Game make regular plants of rainbow trout throughout the winter months. The lake records for each of the species are noted here:

Largemouth bass, bluegill, rainbow trout, channel catfish, black crappie, redear sunfish tend to be the primary focus of anglers. The trout usually only bite in the cooler months after the DFG plants.

Day and night, hawks and owls are frequently seen hunting for prey. The bike trail offers an easy and convenient way to see some of the birds and other wildlife of Lake Perris. Early morning or dusk are the best times. Ranger-led hikes are conducted during the spring and early summer months.

Most plants and animals at Lake Perris are well adapted to the hot, dry environment. Chamise leaves are tiny and waxy to minimize water loss due to evaporation. Some grasses and wildflowers rush from bloom to seed in just a few short weeks and are able to complete their life cycle within the brief wet season. Kangaroo rats are so well adapted to dry environments that they seldom drink water, and manage to extract the moisture they need directly from their food.

The plants and animals of Perris Valley have changed considerably over the last two hundred years due to human activity, but its natural history can be intriguing.


The Big Rock Triathlon at Lake Perris, 2009

There are many recreational activities allowed on, in, and around Lake Perris and in the State Recreation Park. Guided hikes are offered on the trail around the lake, and several camping sites are located near the lake side. The lake is open for boating from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm from Thursday to Monday. Other activities include fishing, picnicking, horse-back riding, swimming (in designated areas), and rock climbing. The park also hosts the annual Big Rock Triathlon[3] at sprint and Olympic distances. There is also a museum on the park grounds.[4]

A nine mile paved road loops around the lake which is used to access the different areas of the lake (although the portion that runs along the top of the Perris Dam is unavailable for vehicles) and is also used by hikers, runners, and cyclists. The northwest side of the lake has beaches and swimming areas, picnic grounds with tables and grills, camp grounds including RV camp grounds, a launch ramp, a marina, a small pier, and various peninsulas. The southwest side is the Perris Dam, and allows for rock fishing. The southeast side has picnic grounds, camp grounds, and a rock climbing area. The northeast side is largely left undeveloped in order to preserve the natural flora and fauna, although it is accessible to the public. Furthermore, the paved road strays away from the lake shore thus discouraging people to disturb this section of the lake. Fishing is allowed almost anywhere. Lake Perris has one lake island called Alessandro Island, and it has picnic grounds with tables, grills, and permanent restroom facilities. The island also has a trail that goes halfway around it. The island can only be reached by boat. There are various hiking trails to be found in the park such as those that lead to Terri Peak, the highest point in the park accessible by trail at 2,569 ft.[5] The highest point in the park is Mt. Russell at 2,704 ft., but no trail leads to the mountain or to its summit.[6]


Lake Perris and the surrounding area has hot, dry summers and cool, moist winters. Rain is almost limited to the six months between November and April. The area lies at a crossroads of weather influences. Coastal fog and smog comes from the west, while "Santa Anas"—strong, hot, dry winds—come from the deserts to the east and northeast. The average water temperature is 70 °F (21 °C) ; during the summer months, it is bathwater-warm and very pleasant to swim in.

Lake Perris water withdrawal[edit]

This section needs to be updated. Please help update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information.(June 2021)

For several months following July 2005, the water in Lake Perris was drawn down by about 20 percent (about 24 feet) due to safety concerns with the dam. An extensive modern study concluded that the dam could be partially breached if a 7.5 magnitude or higher earthquake were to strike in the area. Heightening the engineers' fears was the fact that the San Jacinto Fault, easily capable of creating a 7.5 tremor, passes just a few miles north of the lake. It may take more than two years for the state to plan a course of action to bolster the dam.

All recreational activities are still allowed, with some restrictions. Most noticeably, the 35 mph (56 km/h) boating zone has been reduced to the area between the dam and Alessandro Island. The area from the island east is now a 5 mph (wakeless speed) area. Swimming is only allowed at Perris Beach (Lots 1, 2, 3, and 4). Reservations for boats are highly recommended in the summer; weekends sell out fast. Since the drawdown there are fewer first-come, first-served spots available for watercraft. In the summer of 2006 (Memorial Day to Labor Day) most reservations sold out a week or two in advance.

2028 Summer Olympics[edit]

The Los Angeles Olympic Bid for the 2028 Summer Olympic Games made an agreement with the Department of Parks and Recreation for the Lake to be host for competitive Canoe-Sprint and rowing competition when Los Angeles hosts the 2028 Summer Olympics. The bid committee preferred Lake Perris to Lake Casitas as Lake Perris is near a larger population base and is in close proximity to UCR for athletes’ accommodations. In February 2019 the International Rowing Federation announced that they had been asked to look at the possibility of using Long Beach Marine Stadium (the 1932 Olympic rowing venue) instead of Lake Perris. No decision has been made.[7]
