“A 5 Star Dead Lake In The Middle of Nowhere”
Review of Soda Lake

Soda Lake
Attraction details
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you're looking for some very interesting scenery, you'll want to drive out to Soda Like. There is a good lookout point where you can see for miles.

This is the best dead lake I've ever seen! Ther eis a very intersting history from before the water was stolen from it.

However, the very interesting part is the San AndreasFault. You can see it streatch across the landscape. If you go about 10 miles past Soda Lake, heading South, you can turn left and drive up into the fault. That is a spooky feeling and worth 5 stars.

Going to Soda Lake is a full afternoon excursion.

Great wildflowers in spring, very remote gas up before heading out, no nearby services. You have a chance to see a California Condor.

We stumbled across this on the roundabout way back from Hearst Castle enroute to Tehachapi. If you are in the area you should go see it. The only thing out here is the marker and a bathroom (no running water).

The best time to visit the Carrizo Plain is during the spring wildflower bloom...unbelievable expanses of color...check the hunting regs, lead ammo not allowed...
