How do you get to the lake

Be careful with GPS! There is a huge error that can take you up to Squaw Valley and put you on a lengthy detour.

When driving from the south, take I-5 to CA 99 North headed to Bakersfield/Fresno. Coming into the Fresno area, take CA 41 East, then quickly merge right into CA 180 East Kings Canyon. Turn Left/North onto Academy Ave at the 180/Academy intersection. *Follow Direction for EVERYONE

When driving from the North, If on I-5 South take HWY 152 Los Banos to CA HWY 99 South to Fresno. In Fresno, take CA 180 East toward Kings Canyon. Exit Left/North on Academy Avenue.

Did you miss the Academy intersection? Take Piedra Road off HWY 180 East. Turn right at the T, onto Trimmer Springs Road.

Did you miss Piedra Road? Then take the left turn after Minkler, to stay on HWY 180. Turn left/North onto Frankwood, Turn Right onto Piedra Road, Turn Right after crossing the Piedra Bridge onto Trimmer Springs Road.

*EVERYONE - Turn Right/East onto Belmont Ave at the intersection of Academy and Belmont. Continue East on Belmont; it will become Trimmer Springs Road without having to make a turn. You will be on a single lane road with no passing. Please pull over for faster vehicles. You will pass Kings River Packing Station and then see the river on the right. The road will wind up a grade to the lake. If you are headed to the first launch ramp, yield right on Sunnyslope and take it to the roads end. If you headed to another launch area, don’t be alarmed at not seeing the lake, it will be several miles before it opens up to a view.

There are 4 launch ramps. In order, starting at the dam and going to the river inlet are: Deer Creek, Island Park, Lake View, and Trimmer. Deer Creek and Lake View stay open year round. Island Park and Trimmer close when lake levels drop below the length of the ramp.
