Return to Lake Perris Home

Though Lake Perris was established to provide Southern Californians recreational opportunities in boating, picnicking and swimming, camping, hiking, and others, the park is also home to many species of animals and plants native (and some not native) to the Southern California deserts.

Here you can find information on some of the animals that you might see on your visit.

Keep Wildlife Wild

Respect the park's animals at a distance: for your safety, and theirs, never feed or approach animals in the park.

  •  Keep your distance from animals, even if they approach you
  •  Dispose of trash in trash cans or dumpsters
  •  Keep your food and trash from wildlife by storing it properly, day and night.
  •  Failure to obey regulations may result in citation.
