Is Rueter-Hess Reservoir open to the general public?

At this time, the reservoir is not open to the general public.  Prior to opening to the public, significant improvements are required at the Hess Road entrance, as well as on-site recreation staff/rangers and completion of the necessary infrastructure required to accommodate the general public (i.e., roads, trails, restrooms, parking, etc.)     Programs and events that fit the vision of the reservoir and the current capabilities to provide a safe experience are provided throughout the summer months.
