The lakeside is very peaceful and serene. The water is absolutely clear and still. Surrounded by high ground on all sides, the place is quiet even for North Cal. Good spot for sunsets too.

Fun, easy hike. Beautiful scenery! The fish were lined up at the bridge, but not biting when we went down to the lake! Still fun!

Many walking trails, beaches (the water is pretty cold), and picnic areas. We saw boaters and kayakers on the lake. The water was quite low, but so pretty. I wanted to spend all day there just chilling.

Spent a lovely afternoon at the lake this week. The water was quite cool (as it is October), but refreshing and clean. A few stand-up paddlers, swimmers and boaters. Love this place!!

Had a mens' retreat over the last weekend in September. The campground was about one third full. We stayed in a "cabin" that supposedly slept 6. Not quite. First, it was a mobile home. Second, it would legitimately sleep five: two in a queen bed, and one each in two bunk beds and a sofa-futon day bed. Two small children... More

It's crazy busy in the summer up til Labour Day weekend with kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming going on. There's also a fantastic water playground with giant inflatables for... More

Arrived during off season to a nearly empty beach. Water low this year meaning nearly 100 yards from parking lot to the water. Wife and friend swam in the water which they said was cold but bearable. Young adults played volleyball in the established court in the wood. Two sailboats enjoyed the breezes. Delightful place to tarry on a warm... More

We had a nice ride out to Lake Siskiyou, this is a beautiful spot for a sack lunch. The beach is kind of rocky, not much sand. There were a lot of kayakers on the water.

It costs $1 per person for day use at the camp, beach, marina and hiking area. You can rent a motorized boat from the marina for fishing or just fun. You can rent a kayak, peddle boat or canoe from the beach, you can camp and you can hike here. They have restaurants, a store, a snack bar and a... More
