Area at west end has been reserved, rangers say
The west gate leading into the Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Area will be closed from Oct. 1-12, the Kern County Parks and Recreation Dept. has announced.
“The area beginning at the Kern River inlet to the west entry gate has been reserved for a private function,” a department news release said.
All BVARA visitors must enter the main gate, which can be accessed from Enos Lane at the intersection with Taft Highway (Hwy 119).
Fishing will not be allowed at Lake Evans during the 12-day period.
The campground and picnic areas on the east end of the recreational lake facility will remain open to the public.
