“Very Peaceful”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

We drove through to explore the possibilities for future trips and were pleasantly surprised. This is a very pretty lake area with lots of land and allows for camping, fishing, hiking and get togethers both large and small. Great for a day trip or staying awhile. We will definitely be back and try the fishing. Look for the wildlife on your drive if you go in the morning or early evening.

“Beautiful Surroundings”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

We are lucky to have several lakes within a couple hours drive of each other on the Central Coast. But this one is my favorite. Great place to camp or just spend the day. You see deer and wild turkeys among other wildlife and it's just beautiful. Give this place a try when you are in the area.

“Don't Go”
Reviewed August 9, 2010

Lake was green - no swimming was advised. Tons of yellow jackets and flies. no grass - everything was brown and dried up - just dirt. To many hills to ride bikes. Toilets and showers were gross. Plus side, was cheap and saw lots of deer, turkey's, woodpecker's and blue jay's. Our spot was roomy - some are small. I did like that you could drive into town (not to far) and do other things. I won't go back, I prefer the beach.

“Be careful...”
Reviewed August 19, 2009

The Marina jipped us out of $209 for a propeller they say we ruined. With a lifetime of boating experience I know we didn't do the damage they claim we did. It seemed like a typical bait & switch rip of scheme for out of towners. Do not trust the Marina.
