Accessibility at Lake Perris
Accessibility is an important issue at Lake Perris State Recreation Area. All staff and volunteers are prepared to assist persons with disabilities in their pursuit of recreational opportunities. Additionally, measures have been taken to accommodate special needs such as a designated shoreline fishing area, where people in vehicles that display disabled placards are allowed to drive very near to the waters edge. Newly acquired beach/all terrain wheelchairs are also available for use within park boundaries.
Improvements to facilities regarding accessibility are constantly underway. In fact, several new campsites and play structures with accessible surfacing are soon to be opened for public use, and plans are in the works for additional compliant restrooms and marina facilities.
Accessible Campsite Policy- Effective Immediately
November 7th, 2005
Effective immediately, visitors reserving accessible campsites will be required to possess a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Disabled Placard or License Plate issued by the DMV (or a similar agency of another state). Disabled veterans possessing a disabled veterans license plate also meet the requirement for reserving and occupying an accessible campsite. At the time of check-in, visitors must show the DMV Disability Paperwork that was issued to them at the time their placard and/or license plate was issued.
If an accessible campsite has not been filled by 5:00 p.m. each day, that campsite may be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis to a person without a disability for one night only.
The Disabled Discount pass only applies to the pass holder and their personal campsite and/or vehicle. It does not apply to group picnic and group camp reservations.
