Free Boat Rental at Los Vaqueros Reservoir, Byron, CA - A Little Incentive For a Little Adventure...

Have you ever considered an afternoon boat ride at Los Vaqueros Reservoir or a day trip fishing to bring adventure to your routine? We have! To my surprise, I found Contra Costa Water District is sponsoring a FREE boat rental to their district rate paying customers. 

I telephoned the reservoir to check on program guidelines. Turns out, they are more flexible than I expected. The Ranger was very helpful, offering all sorts of excellent tips and suggestions about visiting the Reservoir. Even town home and multi-unit water bill customers can bring proof of address, join the Ratepayer club, and the LV Reservoir will honor the free boat rental. Sometimes town home residents don't have an individual water bill to "bring." When in doubt, phone the Reservoir and discuss the details before heading out there.

There are many other things to do at the LV Reservoir, such as hiking trails, tarantula run, fantastic opportunities for children to learn about the local environment and wildlife that depend on the watershed for survival.

Call ahead (925) 371-2628 to reserve one free boat rental (not sure of promotion end date.)
