Due to maintenance Lake Poway Concessions will close at 2 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the month of October. This means there will be no boat rentals or fishing permit sales after 2 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays in October. Please come to Lake Poway early to purchase your boat rentals and fishing permits. Thank you.
Nestled in the hills of Poway, the Lake Poway Recreation Area not only serves as the water supply for residents, but also has provided exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities since 1972. Get hooked on fishing and boating, head up the mountain on a hike, take aim at archery, or enjoy a leisurely picnic.
Lake Poway's gates open at 6:00 AM daily and are closed and locked at sunset.
