Stillman Magee Regional Park in Clements reopened for day-use and camping on Saturday, July 15. The park was among those closed since January due to flooding and safety concerns. Mossdale Crossing Regional Park and Dos Reis Regional Park, both in Lathrop, remain closed. There is no anticipated reopening date at this time.
As the Mokelumne River is popular for water recreation, officials are asking guests to exercise caution when enjoying the waterways. Adult and child-size life preservers are available for loaned use on the river from the Mokelumne River Day Use Area, 15 miles east of Lodi off Highway 12 at the base of Camanche Dam, to Stillman Magee, 23801 N. Mackville Road, Clements. The life preservers, which are provided through the Kids Don’t Float Program, can be picked up and returned at both parks and at the Clements Fire Station, 18901 E. Highway 88, Clements.
