Come at around mid April, they are so beautiful. For the last 3 years they are not much of the flowers due to the changes of weather, as shown in the picture. But If you are in a right timing.. they are so amazing . between 8am to 9am they bloom so beautiful.

Miles of beautiful poppy flowers everywhere! I have to say, though, there were more poppies along the side of the road on the way to the preserve that we actually saw at the preserve! Many people were just having a picnic on the side of the road. It is worth the road trip to see. They have a great website... More

First time traveler's to the harsh and hot environment of the Antellope Valley would be had pressed to find an Oaisis in the middle of the desert. Look no further than beyond the California Poppy Reserve. Miles if picturesque floral beauty contained within the untamed beast of the desert. Each time that I visit this serene site, I am immediately... More

poppies are the state flower and they are beautiful to witness if you see them here in full bloom. The trick is you need to have good timing. Not much else to see up here but it is worth the trip. April 2011.

This is a great place to spend the afternoon. They have several different paths of different lengths. If you stop in the gift shop, the folks are very friendly and helpful. They will even point out where you should go to see other flowers or really good blooms. The whole experience was delightful. Take the time ... wonder the trails... More

Due to the long drought we have had the past few years, we didn't expect to see a lot of flowers. However, we were quite lucky. The flowers were blooming quite plentifully this year. The big rain in late February and some more in March helped to prolong the bloom. The weather was very nice in spring although it was... More

So many poppies are here this year that it looks like an orange carpet. Some of the areas adjacent to the Reserve are better then the Reserve but it is all beautiful for viewing. Many different flowers alongside the poppies make for beautiful pictures.

No words needed, just look at the pictures. We traveled on April 14, 2014. The day was warm and windy. The best view we found was near Elizabeth Lake. I thought it would be awesome for some wedding fashion photo shooting. We picked the right time, just before the festival. Have fun!
