Lake Piru Boating in a Nutshell

  • Waterskiing, Wakeboarding
  • Pleasure Cruising, Patio Boats, Fishing Boats
  • Kayaking, Canoeing, Sailing, Paddle Boards

Lake Piru is a great place for waterskiing and other boating. Up to 50 personal watercraft are now allowed on the lake. Even so, Piru is less congested compared to other nearby lakes. There are separate high-speed boating and fishing areas. The maximum speed limit on the lake is 35 MPH. Boats must be between 12 feet and 26 feet long. Canoes and kayaks over eight feet long are permitted in the special-use area. No alcohol is allowed in the park or on the lake. Two floating restrooms are found on the lake.

Boats do need to be inspected for Quagga and Zebra mussels. Hours of the park vary by season, so it is best to call ahead to be sure of opening and closing times. (805) 521-1500
