Hidden Jewel just off of the Hwy. 15

I was quite surprised to find this very large lake that was not wall to wall boats just a half an hour east off of the Hwy.15 in the Cajon Pass. Then after entering the park, it was free entrance fee because I was a veteran, we toured the camp grounds and found some very nice areas that you could... 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.

If you are they type of camper who wants to sit around a roaring fire, listen to the birds and unwind, then avoid this place like the plague. The rules do not apply here, and everyone keeps turning up their music louder than their neighbors. We constanty had people walking through our campsite without a clue. The partying went on... More

Was a really nice lake to sit on shore and watch sunrise. We tried fishing from shore with no luck. Boaters leaving the area travel along one of the few spots we could get to by walking. If you truly want to have a great time I think you would want to get a boat and find the fish. Drive... More

This is definitely worth visiting... When I'm in town, I like to take my aunt here. The views are amazing and it's a nice place to relax.

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.

I've been fishing this lake for several years and go at least once a month year round. Fishing has always been good for Stripers, Largemouth Bass, Catfish and Rainbow Trout. The Lake is stocked regularly by the DFG during winter/spring. Many times I rent a boat at their dock and the prices are very reasonable. The lake also has a... More

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 short drive.

My husband took our family here after a small vacation from Las Vegas to Laguna Beach. This place looks like a great place to spend the day, or even camp. Clean water and facilities. The beach is great for smaller children, my daughter loved it. I recommend if your in the area and if you have younger kids.
