People the green IS Algae . It happens in most warm water lakes . It's called an Algae Bloom.
The reason why the sign says if the wind blows come off the lake is because rookie boat
renters can get into serious trouble on a large lake . Waves are generated that can swamp
rental boats! The campground has nice sites . The cabins are under $100.00 what were
you expecting ? Sure the place could be better. But in my mind you get what you pay for.
Go there in the Spring before it gets hot . The lake will be prettier and they have trout stocked.

“Tourmaline Mines”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Spent three nites there while visiting the local tourmaline mines in the area. Cabin was mostly clean and comfortable (a few cobwebs on an artificial plant, we just moved it away from the bed). They are older cabins, but a good value for the price. The lake is a short walk across the road, and like many in California, is almost dry; hopefully we get some badly needed rain this winter.
There is no television or radio, so after a hard day of mining, we were able to get caught up on sleep and came home well rested. There was loud highway traffic noise, but it died down around 8 or 9 o’clock. There was no A/C, so maybe not the best place to stay during the hot summer season (maybe bringing a fan would help), but the heater worked great. It also had a nice kitchenette to help save $$$, or the option of a restaurant next door (Great food and service, but not cheap). I’d definitely stay there again.

“Don't waste your money!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Our family decided to leave the city and enjoy a quiet weekend at the lake. My boys and husband spent the day on the water and caught not one fish! The lake has zero visability, the algae was so bad, and the smell was awful. After checking into our cabin we found it was terribly dirty. There were cobwebs and spiders throughout, ants, and broken doors. Sitting outside at the picnic table was impossible, there were red ants crawling up our legs. We were told there was a pool. After searching and finally finding it, we discovered it was located in the community trailer park and was filled with residents.The only good experience we had was eating at the cafe, good food and good service. We ended not even staying the night and drove back home the same day. Spend a little more money and head to Big Bear!

“avoid this place”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

i went with the church group. this place was a second choice - the place we liked was fully booked.
It is no wonder why booking is easy.
It is a dump. Restrooms are filthy -- no maintenance or because people who go there just are filthy.
It is sad that this place is not maintained because it has good potentials. Large area which is good for big church outings. Lots of trees and shade.
Will never recommend.
Will never return.
