House Creek Boat Inspection Sign

The House Creek Recreation Complex is across the reservoir from the McPhee Complex. From Dolores, take 11th Street to the Dolores-Norwood Road (Forest Rd. 526) and go about six miles, then southwest on the House Creek Road (Forest Rd. 528) for just over 5 miles. The access road and parking areas are paved. This gently sloping, grassy area is near the reservoir’s high-water line. There has an open play area, sanitary dumping station, group picnic area, and four-lane boat ramp.
