Long List of Projects Completed at Lake Dixon
Over the past couple months, a lot of work has been completed at Lake Dixon. These projects were made possible by the Lake Division in collaboration with many different departments and organizations:

  • The Dixon Lake road from the entrance to the ranger station was repaved.
  • New roofing was installed by Building Maintenance on the camping cabin and picnic shelters.
  • The Daley Ranch parking lot got a new ranch style fence to help delineate parking and several hazardous trees were removed at both Lake Dixon and Lake Wohlford.
  • Security cameras were installed at Lake Dixon by Information Systems.
  • Almost 11 miles of trail (about 44% of our overall trail system) were made safer and more sustainable at Daley Ranch by Lakes and Public Works staff.
  • A future park host site was added at Daley Ranch as per the master plan; the pad was graded & electricity, sewer, and water were connected and work has started to convert campsite 9 into a full-hookup campsite or future host site.
