NOTICE: Gunlock State Park is currently under Stage 1 Fire Restrictions. No open fires are allowed except within established campfire facilities in our improved campgrounds and picnic areas. Visit for more information on these restrictions. #FireSense makes sense

Gunlock Waterfall Watch: THE WATERFALLS AT GUNLOCK STATE PARK ARE NOT FLOWING.  Please be aware that the snowpack is over for the year and reservoir levels are dropping.   The reservoir is no longer overflowing and therefore there are no longer waterfalls.  The area is still open but is dry. Please utilize the appropriate pay station to pay your entrance fee. Annual day-use passes are accepted. Visit THIS LINK for updated information on the status of the waterfalls. 

Recreating on the rocks near the waterfalls is dangerous. Rocks are slick, water is swift, and covered hazards exist in the pools. We strongly encourage visitors to use caution and be observant in the area.

Welcome to Gunlock State Park

Boat, fish, and swim on the tranquil waters at Gunlock Reservoir, or enjoy an afternoon picnic on the beach.  Warm waters during summer and a mild winter climate make the park a year-round destination.
