Until when will the lake rentals be open for this year? My kids were thinking about possibly going kayaking this upcoming weekend if the rental stand will be open.
I believe everything is open until October.
How far is the dog swimming area from the beach area? Is there a fence separating them? I am bringing my family with 3 kids and my mom with her little dog and wondering if we will be able to enjoy the lake together. Is there admission to the doggie swim area like the beach area?
Hi – The doggie beach is separated by a fence – no dogs are allowed in the people swimming area. The doggie beach is free.
Be sure to pick up a flyer in town at any of the Green Valley Lake businesses. This flyer will give you the addresses and a brief description of the artists involved in this year s event. The flyers will be available at the local businesses so don t forget to pick one up because you probably won t remember who s who and where their studio is without the map.
is swimming allowed? is there any type of fee? and is the lake large? and hows parking? can someone help me?
Check out the rest of the website. On the “Things to Do” menu all the fees are under Swimming & Fishing. Lots of free parking. The lake is about the size of 2 football fields.
How do you participate in the artisan tour ? (We’ve attended it over the years but would actually like to be one of the “artisans ” this year!
P.s. This would be for the thanksgiving one :). Unfortunately I don’t have one of the old maps with the info!
Can i bring my own paddle boat to the lake? Or is there a fee or it is not allowed?
Also is there a place that I can bbq?
You must be a share holder to have your own boat on the lake – but there are paddle boats for rent. Because of the strict fire regulations this summer, the BBQs are closed. Propane is OK with a permit – Bait Shop has the forms.
No I am not a share holder. I just happen to own one of those inflatable paddle boat. If it’s Ok for us to use it i will bring it. As for the propane I will surely get the permit. Thank you
is there cell service at the campground?
My Verizon phone gets one bar – in town you get 4 bars.
is the beach open for swimming during the week or only weekends?
Open every day until September.
So no swimming in September? Is there anything that little ones can do for entertainment? My friend and I are hoping to book at your campground mid September and they have 3 little ones 5,3,2.
The beach is open until October – there may be no lifeguard on duty.
I wanted to make sure that the postings for the summer concert series on this page are for this year (2015). I noticed that the Art and Music tab of the website still had the series calendar from 2014.
Hi – Thanks for the heads-up. I forgot to update that page. Our last July concert is Saturday the 25th at 5:30pm with Jimmy Reid.
Grits & Grady are playing at the Lake Inn from 6:30 to 9:00pm.
Thanks! Hopefully we’ll be able to make it :). Sounds fun.
We are visiting in Sept. Will there still be canoe and paddleboard rentals or is this in the summer?
The Lake is still open until Oct. 31st. Things slow down after Labor Day, but the Lake Manager is still on the job until then.
Do we have to have a permit to drive on the dirt road (off roading in a hummer) towards the end of GREEN VALLEY LAKE ROAD, on the left, there is an off road that goes to Fawnskin, do we need a permit for that?
That is forest service road 2N13 – if the gate is open it is open for “street legal” vehicles – you see quite a few dirt bikes and 4-wheelers back there but technically they’re illegal. Sometimes it is closed during high fire danger weather.
BTW, did you know that it was the original road to Big Bear? The “Artic Circle” route (Hwy 18) wasn’t built until 1923.
Im bringing up about 30 boy scouts in June. anyone know if the campground can handle that size group?
Check with the campground about reserving adjacent sites – website is listed under “Camping”.
Visiting Green Valley Lake on the weekend of September 13-14 with four of my girlfriends (ages 18-19). I was wondering if there is anything fun to do there on Friday and Saturday nights? or is it better to drive to Arrowhead or Big Bear.
Also, does anyone know of great place to hike during the day. Someone told me there were beautiful waterfalls near.
Any information would help. Thank you.
There is a nice trail off Crab Flats Rd that leads west to a small pond and waterfall – don’t know how much water will be there this time of year. There’s live music at the Lake Inn on Saturdays (Grits & Grady play on the 20th – not sure who’s there on the 13th). Arrowhead or Big Bear would be more “lively”, but GVL has that small town charm
Are there any rentals available and if yes who is a good contact? We are a retired couple and would like to do a long weekend visit. Thank you.
Yes ! Check out the “Business” page – Under “Rentals and Real Estate” you’ll find several listings.
When is the Green Valley Car Show this year? It’s been in September far as I can remember.
Unfortunately, Roger H. decided he can’t organize it this year.
When is the Artisan Tour? Can I still be included?
The Artisan Tour is on Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and Labor Day Weekends The phone number is on the map/flier.
When is the car show?
Sorry, Roger decided not to do the Car Show this year.
This will be our first fourth of July at green valley. There is a bike parade I have heard about. How can we sign up to participate?
It’s bikes, wagons, walkers, whatever. Meet around 10:30am at GVL Rd. and Lakeside. There will be people there with the sign-up sheets.
Is there going to be a 4th of july boat decorating contest this year? Thanks Sandy for answering all the questions out there.
That’s organized by a woman who lives on the Lake – so I don’t know. Try the Lake Recreation email: GVLFISHING@gmail.com – maybe they have heard.
Do you know when leaves and pine needles need to be picked up off your property. Thanks
The new policy does not have a specific date – property owners are supposed to keep their property clear of fire hazards throughout the year. The inspections are also done year-round. It makes sense to do clean-up before fire season, of course.
Are paddleboards allowed on the lake? If so, which side?
The Lake has stand-up paddleboards for rent this year, I’m not sure about putting in your own. Try emailing email@example.com.
When is the car show this year?
I don’t think a date has been set yet – It will posted here as soon as it’s set.
oops I was not specific, fishing float tubes
No, sorry. All the rules are on http://www.gvlfishing.com.
ok cool. thank you for the reply
are float tubes allowed?
Are jet skies allowed on lake
No, sorry – no motorized craft.
Are kayaks allowed on the lake? We are trying to but in Green Valley
Only “Share Holders” can use their own boats on the lake. There are kayaks for rent.
Thank you! We are hoping to purchase there soon and become part of your fantastic community
Is lake opened for fishing now 5/1st or untill third Friday of May?
Fishing from the bank is OK – Lake doesn’t officially open until 16th.
I know this has been a very dry year. Does anyone know of an easy trail for a walking disabled person, that is in the trees, and where there is a stream or some sort of water close by? Thank you
If you go down Crab Flats Road about 200 yards to where the stream goes under, there is an old access road (there’s a gate on the right) that follows the creek towards the West. It’s fairly level for a while. The creek is on the right.
Does the lake ever have any trout tournaments
There are some in the planning stages – visit the “Things To Do” tab and under Fishing there’s a link to the Lake website. It will be updated soon.
When is the first day in May, that fishing is allowed and the first week that it will be stocked?
Fishing is always allowed from the bank; the boat rentals, fee collection, etc. begins May 1st. The lake is stocked the first time during the last week of April.
im interested in the CERT classes can you please tell me who to contact
Chief Grabow at 909-867-2766 ext. 110
