Really nice lake, at the entrance you can get beer and snacks. Similarly to other nature spots in the state, one can find the usual plastic chairs, not great facilities, drunk people having its own mini party, and local "norteños" which are a 3 men bands playing loud music with unattractive instruments. Despite all of the local taste, the lake... More

This lake is incredibly beautiful, More than a lake, it's is spring fed and the water was crystal clear, and it's the beginning of a small river! In consequence the water is super clean- green-blue. You can swim and do snorkel, all the edge of the lake is surrounding by big trees “ahuehuetes” (also known as Montezuma Cypress).

It's was so nice to spend the day at this gorgeous lake. We walked all the way around and took in all the beauty before going for a swim. The water is so clear that you can see all the fish that live in the water. Seeing the trees growing from the water is just amazing. I would recommend water... More

I never get tired of visiting "Lago de Camecuaro", the woodsy area gives it a great serene feeling, the crystal clear waters are refreshing to just watch, Taking one of the little boats to get toured around the lake with your couple is just perfect. They have great food from the local vendors, and if you want some live musical... More

I love Camecuaro is one of the most beautiful lakes I've been to. My family lives in Zamora and its a place we visit every time I visit Michoacan. The water is crystal clean and refreshing.

Several years ago a couple of friends and I took a tour of pottery villages in Michoacan with Traditions Mexico. We spent 2 nights in a hotel adjacent to the lake. We arrived on a national holiday and the park around the lake was packed with people. There were 3 wandering bands playing loudly and a cloud of dust hung... More

Lake Camecuaro is two hours from La Casa Encantada & Patzcuaro. This is a hidden JEWEL of a place. Lake Camecuaro is at the source of some major springs. It is fed by clear springwater which then flows to Zacapu and finally ends up in Lake Chapala. The water is sparkly clean and beautiful. The lake has gorgeous very old... More
