2019 Water Level & Beach Conditions

Irrigation season is coming to a close and Lake McConaughy is at 3,258.8 feet elevation or 89.5% of capacity. Water temperature varies around the lake, but was reported to be 75° at the dam. Check the 10 day forecast here: https://wxch.nl/2XqUQmh

How much beach is available?  That depends on where you go. The slope of the beaches varies widely across the 100+ miles of shoreline. In some areas you will find a few yards, and in some areas several hundred feet. Beach camping areas fill up quickly on the weekends, but a weekday visit is often a good time to find a place.

Primitive camping is on a first-come, first-served basis in areas not zoned for other purposes, and the beach area around Martin Bay on the north side tends to fill up first.
