Spent a lovely afternoon at the lake this week. The water was quite cool (as it is October), but refreshing and clean. A few stand-up paddlers, swimmers and boaters. Love this place!!

We had a nice ride out to Lake Siskiyou, this is a beautiful spot for a sack lunch. The beach is kind of rocky, not much sand. There were a lot of kayakers on the water.

As promised, I was near there today & checked with the staff. They do not permit jet skies on the lake. They have other boating options but not what you are after. Hope this helps!
