We just came here for the scenery and it was ok. I'm slowly adjusting my CA expectations compared to Midwest lakes. This is the highest altitude reservoir in CA so the temperature is quite nice. The beach area is bigger than other lakes within a...More

I see a lot of campers that ride their bikes along the campground area.. but no actual "Bicycle Trails". You can bike along the road from the entrance all the way to the Marina but its kind of hilly and might be difficult... More
