Box Office Hours & Address

Put Your Credentials On Your Wrist and Vehicle Before You Arrive!

Wristbands: Everyone in the vehicle must be wearing their wristband to enter.

Car Camping & RV Passes: Have your RFID Vehicle Pass sticker fully adhered to the inside upper corner of the driver side windshield BEFORE arriving at the gate.

Picking Up Your Credentials: If your tickets are at Will Call or you are purchasing a ticket on-site, you must stop at the Box Office to pick up your wristbands and vehicle passes prior to entering.
If one or more people in your vehicle does not have a wristband, the entire vehicle must go to the Box Office. Vehicles left in the Box Office parking lot for more than 4 hours or overnight will be towed by the County at the owner’s expense.


All attendees must arrive during hours listed below. There is no parking and waiting permitted overnight on New Pleyto Road so plan your arrival accordingly. No exceptions. If you arrive 5 minutes past closing you will be turned away – so prepare!

Thursday 5/25:         10 AM – 12 AM
Friday 5/26:                9 AM – 11 PM

LIB Address: 2091 New Pleyto Road, Bradley, CA 93426

DO Enter the full address above into your smart phone’s navigation system when departing for LIB. This will take you to the North Shore entrance.

DON’T set SAN ANTONIO RECREATION AREA as your destination or you’ll end up at the South Shore Entrance – 1.5 hours away in the wrong direction.

Parking – Carpool And Save $30!

In an effort to to keep emissions low and traffic flowing, LIB’s Carpool Initiative requires all single occupant vehicles be charged $30 to park in the parking lot. Vehicles with two or more passengers are granted free parking. Sorry not sorry!


LIB is fully accessible and welcomes all guests. We have accommodations available when extra assistance is needed. More info found at:
