Although we are genuinely sympathetic to the many unexpected challenges that we all experience in life, with a short 5 month window to operate South Lake Boat Landing does not assume any financial liability for circumstances that may prevent you from visiting. There will be no refunds or compensation for anything that is out of our control including but not limited to anything Mother Nature throws our way (inclement weather, smoke/air quality etc.), car trouble, personal emergencies, illness, health issues or limitations, altitude sickness, family emergencies, water levels, boat availability, trail conditions, how good the fall color looks, how well the fish are biting or ANYTHING else that is out of our control. If you are concerned that you may have to cancel your reservation due to unforseen circumstances or external factors we highly recommend travel insurance to protect your vacation investment.
There are no refunds or discounts for early departures or late arrivals. Our guests are responsible for the entirety of their reservation.

We realize that fishing isn't always the cleanest activity however we ask that our guests remove all trash when disembarking the boat. Do not leave the boat full of sunflower seeds, worm dirt or smears of powerbait in or on the boat. Rentals that are returned in unreasonably dirty conditions will be charged a $50 cleaning fee.
Pontoon boats are not permitted to make contact with the shore at any time. The rocky shoreline of the lake can easily puncture the pontoon or damage the boat and increases the liklihood of damaging the propeller or motor Any guest found beaching the boat will forfeit their rental without refund. The boat will be assessed for damages and the guest will be held financially responsible for any repairs and lost revenue.
High Country Weather
High country weather is very unpredictable but seasonal highs average in the 70’s during the summer and in the 50’s or 60’s in the spring and fall. Average lows are in the high 40’s during the summer and in the low 30’s in the spring and fall. There is a link to our local forecast on the homepage of our website. High and low temps can fluctuate drastically from week to week and day to day so we always recommend that our guests come prepared for both cold and warm conditions to insure a pleasant stay. Early season and late season snow, and summer thunderstorms, are part of what make the Sierra Nevada amazing, don’t be surprised if they visit while you’re here.

Trout stocking is provided by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife and is paid for with revenue from fishing license sales. While we do periodically supplement these stockings with additional trout, we assume no liability for the frequency, size, or amount of fish stocked by the state of California as this is out of our control. Refunds will not be provided based on these conditions.
We are dog friendly so long as the dog is friendly. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. Guests must always clean up after their pet while on the resort grounds. Guests are liable for any damage to our boats.
We no longer provide or allow BBQ's or any cooking devices on our boats. Due to the last two California wildfire seasons we were dropped by our insurance company and we had great difficulty obtaining fire insurance from another vendor. Our new vendor premiums have increased 500% over 2021 so it is no longer worth the risk.
