Stampede Reservoir in California is a popular recreational site that attracts visitors for its boating, fishing, and camping activities. The reservoir was created in 1970 by the Truckee-Carson Irrigation District and is used to supply water for irrigation, hydroelectric power, and municipal needs. The reservoir is fed by several creeks and streams, including the Little Truckee River, which originates in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The snowpack in the mountains serves as the primary source of water for the reservoir. The area surrounding Stampede Reservoir is also used for grazing and agriculture. In recent years, the reservoir has experienced lower water levels due to drought conditions, affecting recreational opportunities and water supply for various uses.
