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!

When we've had recent spring rain, the Poppy Reserve is literally so full of flowers you cannot find space for anything else. This is a large wide open area where you can walk some simple trails and see the beautiful wild flowers. During dry seasons, this isn't that interesting of a place but if you enjoy nature and being away... More

When in bloom this place is beautiful with color. Great place to bring the family for pictures or even a picnic.

The first time I visited the Poppy Fields I thought to myself that this place is beautiful, my kids love the place and said that its beautiful also. Its a great place for hiking and just to get away from the house to be outdoors, long story short, I love this place.

This is a beautiful place for a hike when the poppies are in bloom. It looks like a blanket of orange. Sometimes there are other wild flowers in bloom which creates an amazing display of color. Watch out for Mojave green snakes though, they are out the same time as the poppies.

Be sure to check out when the Lancaster Poppy Festival is. After you leave the park go to the Poppy Reserve and drink in with your eyes one of the most beautiful sites to see. The heaver the rain in the winter the more lovely the Poppies' are in the spring.

It can be awe inspiringly beautiful or dull brown. It depends on the winter weather I think. Some years the local mountains are covered in a beautiful blanket of orange. Other years you're lucky if you can see a few blooms in a field. Some years there are more flowers in town than at the reserve.
