The Silas Lake Park reopens today after being closed for six months. The park was closed because mud and rock slides destroyed part of Cambridge Road, the only access into the park. "We had to remove tons of boulders and rocks," said Hugh Foster of the Parks and Recreation Department. "Then we had to rebuild a bridge and reconstruct almost a mile of highway. I'm really surprised we got it done so soon."

The park is three miles north of Colfax on Highway 28. Cambridge Road is a two-lane highway that winds upward through Pearl Canyon before it descends to Silas Lake, which has about 20 miles of shoreline. The largest lake in the county, it is also famous for bass. In fact, the record largemouth bass catch in California occurred here in 1975. A 14-year-old boy caught a 19-pound bass.

The lake has two ramps for boaters, a full-service restaurant, a snack bar, a small tackle store, and a boat rental facility. As with all county parks, no alcohol is sold or permitted. More than 100 picnic tables have protective roofs and big barbecue pits. There are public restrooms with free shower facilities, lots of trash cans, and hiking trails for nature lovers. The west side of the park includes a softball field, a soccer field, and two volleyball courts. Horseshoes and kite-flying are two other popular activities. In the summer, a designated swimming area has a lifeguard on duty seven days a week.

The entry fee is $10 per vehicle and $10 per boat. Reservations are not accepted. The parking lot holds about 500 vehicles; if it is full, no additional vehicles are allowed to enter. Latecomers either leave or wait in line for someone to leave the parking lot. Some weekends there are three dozen vehicles waiting in line outside the gate. Because of many requests, park officials soon might start permitting campers to stay overnight on weekends.

The park is open from dawn to 10 p.m. during the summer. "We probably average 2,000 people here every day during the summer," said Foster. "They come here to fish, swim, water-ski, jet-ski, picnic, commune with Mother Nature, you name it. People love this place."

Công viên ưa chuộng lại mở cửa

Công viên Hồ Silas lại mở cửa hôm nay sau khi đóng cửa sáu tháng. Công viên bị đóng cửa vì bùn và đá trượt đã phá huỷ một phần đường Cambridge, ngõ vào duy nhất của công viên. "Chúng tôi phải chuyển cả tấn đá cuội và đá tảng, "Hugo Người chăm sóc công viên và Bộ tái thiết nói. "Sau đó chúng tôi phải xây lại cầu và xây lại hầu hết một dặm đường cao tốc. Tôi thật sự ngạc nhiên vì đã làm xong sớm."

Công viên cách Colfax ba dặm về hướng bắc, trên đường cao tốc 28. Đường Cambridge là đường cao tốc hai làn xe uốn cao lên qua hẻm núi hòn ngọc trước khi xuống thấp hồ Silas, nơi có khoảng 20 dặm ven biển. Hồ rộng nhất hạt, nó cũng nổi tiếng với cá pecca. Thực tế, cuộc bắt cá pecca ở California xảy ra năm 1975 ghi nhận. MỘt bé trai 14 tuổi bắt được con cá 19 pound.

Hồ có hai bậc tam cấp cho thuyền, nhà hàng phục vụ, một quán bar bán thức ăn nhẹ, một cửa hàng bán dụng cụ, và một nơi cho thuê phương tiện thuyền. Như với tất cả các công viên của hạt, không được bán rượu hay cho phép rượu. Hơn 100 bàn cắm trại có mái che bảo vệ và hố nướng lớn. Có phòng vệ sinh công cộng và nhà tắm, nhiều thùng rác và đường mòn ẩn dấu cho tình yêu thiên nhiên. Phía tây của công viên gồm nơi banh mềm, đá banh, và hai bãi bóng chuyền. Chuồng ngựa và nơi thả diều cũng là hai hoạt động ưa thích. Vào mùa hè, nơi bơi có bảo vệ bảy ngày trong tuần.

Giá vào cổng $10 một xe và $10 một thuyền. Không chấp nhận đặt chổ trước. Chổ đậu chứa khoảng 500 xe; nếu đầy, không có xe nào được đậu thêm. Người đến trễ phải rời đi hay chờ đến khi có ai rời chổ đậu xe. Vài cuối tuần có ba tá xe chờ ngoài cổng. Vì có nhiều yêu cầu, công viên sẽ bắt đầu cho phép cắm trại qua đêm cuối tuần.

Công viên mở cửa từ rạng sáng đến 10 p.m. trong mùa hè. "Chúng tôi có khoảng 2,000 người đến đây mỗi ngày trong mùa hè." Foster nói. "Họ đến đây để câu cá, bơi, trượt nước, lái máy bay, cắm trại, giao tiếp với Mẹ Thiên Nhiên, như bạn đặt tên. Người ta yêu nơi này."

Hôm nay công viên Silas Lake mở cửa trở lại sau sáu tháng bị đóng cửa. Công viên bị đóng cửa vì bùn và đá trượt phá huỷ một phần Cambridge Road, là con đường duy nhất dẫn vào công viên. "Chúng tôi phải chuyển đi hàng tấn đá cuội và đá tảng," Hugh Foster của Sở Công viên và Giải trí, cho biết. "Tiếp đó chúng tôi phải xây lại một cây cầu và làm lại gần như một dặm đường xa lộ. Tôi thật sự ngạc nhiên khi chúng tôi làm xong sớm như vậy."

Công viên cách phía bắc Colfax ba dặm trên xa lộ 28. Cambridge Road là một xa lộ với hai làn xe chạy quanh co lên phía trên, đi qua Pearl Canyon trước khi đổ dốc xuống Silas Lake, là nơi có 20 dặm ven bờ biển. Đây là hồ nước lớn nhất hạt, nó cũng nổi tiếng với loại cá vược. Trong thực tế, việc bắt được một con cá vược kỷ lục xảy ra ở Caifornia vào năm 1975. Một cậu bé mười-bốn-tuổi bắt được con cá vược nặng 19-pounds.

Công viên có hai bến thuyền, một nhà hàng đầy đủ dịch vụ, một quán ăn, một cửa hàng dụng cụ nhỏ, và một nơi cho thuê thuyền đủ phương tiện. Như các công viên trong hạt, không cho phép hoặc bán các chất có cồn. Hơn 100 bàn ăn ngoài trời có mái che, và các hố nướng thịt lớn. Có các nhà vệ sinh công cộng với các vòi tắm hoa sen tiện nghi miễn phí, rất nhiều thùng đựng rác, và đi bộ đường dài cho những người yêu thiên nhiên. Ở phía tây của công viên bao gồm một sân bóng mềm, một sân bóng đá, và hai sân bóng chuyền. Trò ném móng ngựa vào hố cát và thả diều là hai hoạt động được ưa chuộng. Vào mùa hè, một hồ bơi được lựa chọn có một nhân viên cứu hộ làm việc bảy ngày trong tuần.

Lệ phí vào cổng là 10 đô-la cho xe và 10 đô-la cho thuyền. Không chấp nhận việc đặt chỗ trước. Bãi đậu xe chứa được 500 chiếc xe; nếu bãi đậu xe đã kín chỗ, không có thêm một chiếc xe nào được phép vào. Những người đến trễ đi về hoặc xếp hàng chờ cho ai đó rời khỏi công viên. Một vài bữa cuối tuần có ba tá xe cộ xếp hàng chờ đợi bên ngoài cổng. Do có nhiều lời đề nghị, ban quản lý công viên có thể sớm cho phép những người cắm trại ở lại qua đêm vào dịp cuối tuần.

Công viên mở cửa từ hừng đông đến 10 giờ tối trong suốt mùa hè. "Chúng tôi chắc chắn có trung bình 2.000 người ở đây mỗi ngày trong suốt mùa hè," Foster cho biết. "Họ đến đây để câu cá, bơi lội, trượt nước, đi xe trượt nước, đi chơi và ăn uống ngoài trời, gần gũi với Mẹ Thiên nhiên, bạn có thể gọi như thế. Mọi người đều yêu mến nơi này.
