Water at the Letts Lake Campground in the Mendocino National Forest is scheduled to be shut off by Sunday night as part of the state ordered water curtailment.
That means Campers and others who use the Lake should plan on bringing plenty of drinking water with them.
Even with the ongoing drought and recent curtailment, 35-acre mountain lake is still open for non-motorized boating.
Mendocino Forest Officials say Letts Lake is the first recreation site impacted by the drought imposed cutbacks.
At this time, there is not an estimated date for drinking water access to be restored.
The drought also brings extremely dry fuel conditions and higher fire danger.
That's why fire restrictions are in place, and visitors are urged to be careful with fire or anything that can throw a spark and ignite a wildfire.
