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

I remember when this lake was built several years ago and we had never visited it until recently. We were very surprised at how nice it is. There is ample parking. Nice fishing and boat rentals are available. We also tried the hiking trails around the lake. They are scenic and not difficult. I recommend visiting this lake in April... More

This is a nice well kept secret. One can fish here, rent boats, buy tackle, and get a nice haul. One can hike or jog or bike along the many trails. This is a beautiful man-made water reservoir that feels like you are out of the country when visiting. Down below the lake, is a "water-park" for children, baseball diamonds,... More

I love to hike the trails around the lake because you get some of the best views in town. Most of the trails would be considered very easy to easy. The most challenging trail is the 22 miles around the lake but only because of the distance -- there is very little elevation, so not a strenuous hike. I consider... More

Best place in the area for joggers. No traffic, except for cyclists. 22 miles loop around the lake. Every mile is marked. Beautiful scenery. Must watch for snakes during Spring thru Fall. Usually not on the trail, but sunning themselves along the sides of the trail. Lots of other criters like rabbits, quail, lizards, hawks, even and ocassional Coyete or... More

Great place to fish or just to enjoy the scenery. If fishing enter on the east side. The west side has an excellent overlook with informative placards about its history. There is also shade for a picnic. The roads to both areas is curvy so drive carefully.

Great educational stop to visit this huge California Water Project.....EMWD water source. Also good fishing, boating, and terrific scenery. Boat rentals on WED is 1/2 off and a fun way to spend the day and enjoy lunch from your cooler. Spectacular views of the valley from all points in this huge lake. Only draw back is NO BODY CONTACT....so forget... More
