Recreation & Activities


Beat the heat this weekend and check out the Lime Street Park Pool this summer. With certified lifeguards on duty and a cost of only $3 per person, you can enjoy a refreshing swim. Remember to bring proper swim attire and be prepared to take a swim test if you plan to venture into the deep end.

Camping & Fishing

Hesperia Lake Park is a popular destination for anglers, campers, and picnickers. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk and visitors can enjoy the wildlife while being respectful of their surroundings. The Lake Store is well-stocked with bait, tackle and camping supplies, and visitors must register here before fishing or camping.

Recreation Service Partners

What is a “Recreation Service Partner”?

The Hesperia Recreation and Park District has taken a thoughtful approach to providing the community with various recreational and leisure activities by partnering with local businesses. These businesses must meet specific criteria to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants. One such requirement includes fingerprinting for all employees to ensure the safety of participants. Additionally, the businesses have committed to providing visitors with a clean and welcoming. Through this partnership, the community can enjoy various activities with confidence and peace of mind.
