Independence Lake Preserve is open year-round for walk-in day use, and watercraft are available for use from June through October. No motorized or non-motorized watercraft from outside the Preserve are permitted.

Perhaps the best way to experience Independence Lake is to join a guided tour. Conservancy staff can offer you a behind-the-scenes look at how we are using the Preserve as a demonstration site for addressing issues of importance to human and natural communities throughout the Sierra.
