Please Recreate Safely in our Big Backyard

We recommend enjoying calmer waterways this summer and fall. Please be careful. #LoveBishop

Safety tips for you and your family:

  • Read and follow warning signs – these signs are there for your safety!
  • Keep a safe distance from rivers and stream banks – extreme erosion can compromise rivers and stream banks.
  • Stay on established trails or developed areas.
  • Please keep children close and dogs leashed while near moving water.
  • Avoid slippery rocks and logs.
  • Never enter waterways that are upstream from a waterfall.
  • Stay up to date on local conditions by visiting the LADWP website.


Emergency Preparedness, Response and Recovery


Be sure to check current weather and road conditions.  In winter months, desert passes may be flooded, snowy roadways may be closed or require traction devices to travel north of Bishop. All motor vehicles, including AWD and 4WD must carry traction devices in winter. Tioga Pass (120 to Yosemite) is typically closed November – May.
