Tule Lake Public Access Area

The Tule Lake public access area is located on the east side of Peach Road, south of Airport Road and north of Hot Lake (Hwy. 203).  The Tule Lake area is open to public access most of the year.  From March 1 through July 31, the area is open every day between dawn and dusk.  August 1 through January 31,  access is limited to Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.  Additional information about access dates is available on the Public Access page.

The Tule Lake area offers several miles of flat trails that wind among ponds and canals. Trails are for foot traffic only.

The Tule Lake project was developed in 2005, and encompasses over 400 acres of reclaimed wetland.  Waterfowl use the area in large numbers, and are especially abundant and varied during spring migration.  The Tule Lake area is one of the best locations on the marsh for viewing wading shorebirds.

A one-mile, auto tour route continues from the north end of the parking area and ends on Peach Road.


The Tule Lake parking area hosts pit toilets.









Visitors are reminded that the area is open from dawn to dusk, weapons and dogs are prohibited outside of hunting seasons, and foot traffic only is allowed on the trails.

Enjoy trails through reclaimed wetlands, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including the snow-capped peaks of the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area to the east.
