Visit Camp Edison on Beautiful Shaver Lake

Shaver Lake began a limited reopening on Saturday, June 6.

With safety as our top priority, Shaver Lake has been approved for limited reopening by Fresno County. The following facilities are now open:

  • The lake, shoreline, boat slips, marinas, day-use areas and adjacent trails.
  • Shaver Lake parking lots. The main parking lot used for day parking will be limited to 50% capacity. Because the parking lot adjacent to the boat launch facility is used by individuals towing boats on-site, SCE will not restrict capacity for that parking lot.
  • Bathroom facilities. The bathrooms are single-occupancy and have been equipped with adjacent single-push button activated sinks and soap dispensers.
  • Hours of operation to 8 a.m.-8 p.m.

Signage is being installed reminding visitors that they are required to comply with CDC guidelines. Visitors are asked to observe appropriate physical distancing, wear face coverings when near others and limit the duration of visits.

Camp Edison will begin a limited reopening on Wednesday, July 1.

  • With safety as our top priority, Camp Edison has been approved for partial reopening by Fresno County. Overnight campsites will be available to visitors with recreational vehicles. Tent camping will not be allowed at this time.

Welcome to Camp Edison

Protect Our Forests: Leave Your Firewood at Home

When you visit Camp Edison, be sure to leave your firewood at home, and either collect or buy firewood here in Shaver Lake. Tree-killing insects and diseases can lurk in firewood and cause new infestations that can have devastating effects to our forests, agriculture, and communities. Beginning January 1, 2015, only locally sourced wood will be allowed into Camp Edison.
