We stopped in at the lake while driving the Rim of the World scenic byway (CA138). Day-use fee was about $10. We were there on a Friday before Memorial Day and it was very quiet - we only saw a few people fishing. We drove...More

It was dirty, and gross, and over crowded. I just wasn't impressed what so ever.people just don't get that if you respect a place and clean up after yourselves then it would continue to be a awesome spot to go to enjoy yourselves.

I have never experienced such a bad group of people in a camping area. The lake is good and fishing poor but overall it is a nice place. Unfortunately they don't handle the bad people camping there.
