What a beautiful place to spend the day and picnic with the family. The lake os beautiful and it's very peaceful with plenty of wildlife and views in every direction. It's a fun hike, great place to fish and plenty of boat rentals.

This stretch of Otay us beautiful worth the lakes. There is lots of wildlife to see. It's very calm and relaxing. No crowds to fight. Pack a picnic and enjoy the day!

It has been a bit since I last hung out here. I love walking the lake bank. A great clear view and the water is perfect. Take a picnic, hang out, walk along the bank, or just sit and stare. :)
