Came here after driving the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway and it's worth a detour for the stunning scenery or for water activities. On our visit it was overwhelmingly crowded with the Christian Summer Camp program. There wasn’t an inch of space along the foreshore beach but we managed to walk along it chatting to some of the ‘happy campers’.
The whole area was thronging with excited and well-behaved young adults and some were curious to know where our accent was from! It's plain to see though why Hume Lake is so attractive for all kinds of water sports. Water in the lake just seems to go on forever and it is midnight blue or emerald coloured depending on the light.
Next time we come it will be outside of the summer camp program (it was very friendly and atmospheric though). Lodging and facilities here would be more available and probably a little more serene. This is an artificial lake with a dam however; it still has a stunning location amongst the flourishing forests.
Enjoy your visit!
