The Bureau of Reclamation announces that Boca Dam road has reopened to vehicle traffic. The road was closed in April 2011 to help provide protection to the public and lands downstream. 

Boca Dam and Reservoir are part of Reclamation’s Truckee Storage Project and are located on the Little Truckee River about 6 miles east of Truckee, California, and 27 miles west of Reno, Nevada.

The Tahoe National Forest Boca Campground facilities located on the west side of Boca Reservoir and the Boca Reservoir boat ramp are now accessible using all routes.
