Dixon Lake - Serene and Enjoyable little hikes
Oct 2020
Dixon Lake is a frequent stop for us. This place is very serene. Has many barbeque spots available and many trails to enjoy.

Peaceful camping!
Feb 2020
I spent 2 nights in a spacious, well maintained campsite #39. Great views, quiet. Plenty of hiking and biking trails in my own back yard in Escondido, San Diego County.

Shhhh don't tell anyone...

Great little lake, but not a lot of room, so let's keep it quiet... Haven't landed a trout yet, but have hooked one... on my first cast even! Need to learn a little more patience... but know they are there at least. Lots of picnic areas and even a camp ground, but no open fires, which is the part I enjoy most. Will still give it a try once it warms up a bit.

Loved it at first until the ranger yelled at us
Oct 2018 • Couples
My wife and I took our dog there. We walked down to the lake but missed the sign saying dogs had to be 50 ft away from the lake at all times. The ranger saw us from across the lake and yelled the 50 ft rule to us. When I waved and started to move back, he yelled again and said he could come “give us a citation” if we wanted! Really? We didn’t hesitate in starting to walk away back to the 50 ft range. It would have been a lovely visit besides that yo-yo yelling at us.

Surprising Hidden Gem
Jul 2017
Nestled in the hills of Escondido, this beautiful man made lake provides visitors with many happy surprises. You can fish, rent small boats including paddle boats, hike, picnic, etc. staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a snack bar and other amenities are available. It is quiet, family friendly, and fun!

The lake is small and nothing was biting. A couple of other fishermen fished for several hours too and didn't catch anything. There were many hornets everywhere, my daughter was stung by one.
The positive is that the ranger station had a lot of bait in stock and they were very helpful
