(Grass Valley, CA August 16, 2021) The Nevada Irrigation District (NID) today announced that it reopened Rollins Lake for both day-use and camping at Orchard Springs, Long Ravine, Peninsula and Greenhorn campgrounds.
On August 5, 2021 Rollins Lake was evacuated and closed due to the proximity to the River Fire.
The Nevada Irrigation District, a provider of both drinking and irrigation water, manages 10 reservoirs in the Sierras offering recreational opportunities such as hiking, camping, boating, fishing, swimming, etc. At Rollins and Scotts Flat reservoirs, NID provides public parks, trails, campgrounds and beaches for the community’s enjoyment. Higher up in the mountains, NID maintains and operates campgrounds in the Jackson Meadows and Bowman Lake areas. We deliver water for recreation.
