“Grassy Hills Await You!”
San Luis Reservoir was constructed as a storage reservoir for the federal Central Valley Project and the California State Water Project. It stores runoff water from the Delta that would otherwise flow into the ocean. The water arrives through the California Aqueduct and the Delta-Mendota Canal, and is pumped from the O'Neill Forebay into the main reservoir during the winter and spring. The Los Banos Creek Reservoir was built to prevent storm runoff from flooding the canals.
Great pit stop to stretch your legs. Go into the recreation center for some interesting water facts and very clean bathrooms.
Amazing place to take a break, hike trails and nice view
It cost $10 to enter the place for the day and park your car
