Woodward Reservoir is OPEN with restrictions.
Upon consultation with the Sheriff and our Public Health team, the decision has been made to reduce public access to Woodward and Modesto Reservoirs for the health and safety of Stanislaus County. Stanislaus County remains on the State Public Health Officer’s monitoring list due to elevated levels of transmission of COVID-19. To reduce the number of persons at the reservoirs and the potential for transmission of disease, day-use will be restricted to Stanislaus County residents effective, Friday, July 31st. Camping reservations for non-county residents will be honored through Thursday, August 6th. Camping reservations for non-county residents after August 6th will be canceled. These restrictions will be in effect until further notice.
Woodward Reservoir Regional Park is located at 14528 26-Mile Rd., a few miles north of Oakdale off Highway 120. It offers over 3,700 acres of land and 2,900 acres of reservoir for recreation and camping. For camping reservations, please visit ReserveAmerica.com.
