Camp Creek Diversion Dam is a concrete overflow weir, 20 feet high and 119 feet long. It is part of the Sly Park Unit, consisting of Sly Park Dam and Jenkinson Lake, which provide municipal and industrial water for the nearby community of Placerville, and irrigation water for the El Dorado Irrigation District.
Camp Creek Diversion Dam diverts a portion of the flow of Camp Creek to Jenkinson Lake via Camp Creek Tunnel, and Camino Tunnel and Conduit delivers water from Jenkinson Lake to the El Dorado Irrigation District for irrigation and municipal use.
