Travelled from Palm Springs to DVL for the half marathon event. The event is very well done and the drive to DVL is quite nice. The lake itself is beautiful although I'm not sure what someone would do here without a boat. I was there for the race, of course, and it was a challenging enough course over winding, gravel,...

Hard to believe that this lake was man made. You get a perspective of how the water levels have dropped over the years as you can see the ring marks left by previous.

Although everything from license to access to boat rental add considerable cost to the overall experience, Diamond Valley Lake is great for Bass fishing. Once on the lake, there are endless opportunities to hook up on a lunker. During the spawn you can find male bass in the shallows protecting nests. Get yourself a nice pair of polarized glasses and... More

I visited Diamond Valley Lake today and I thought it was beautiful. We were just passing through to check it out on a road trip somewhere else. When we pulled in the parking lot there was no one to take our money so we just parked. Later in the store, we found out that there is rarely anyone at the... More

Went for a walk across the dam and back,nice views but the water was down so low I don't think you could launch a boat. There were only 4 trucks with trailers at 1100 am. There were rental boats at the marina at the end of a very long and steep ramp. I think the hiking and biking trails would... More

You responded to the review re shore fishing by directed the reviewer to another lake. I too like to shore fish and find it strange that only a small area can be fished. Then you stated that the lake has 2.5 miles of shore fishing that is restricted. What are the restriction? You would think that some accomodation can be... More

I have to say how furious it makes me when EVERYONE'S taxpayer dollars are used to build a terrific facility like this reservoir, but that it flatly discriminates against shore fishermen by the piddly little strip of shore set aside for fishing. I don't know why they did this and frankly I don't care why. CHANGE IT SO THAT EVERY... More

hpgdiver, Public Relations Manager at Diamond Valley Lake, responded to this review

Dear sbfoster777, we are so sorry that the shore fishing fell below your expectations. We do have about 2 ½ miles of shoreline fishing but it's restricted use due in part because the land is considered a wildlife preserve. Our sister property, LIttle Lake does have shoreline access and you can drive up and park next to your favorite fishing... More
