This is a great place. We love the view and especially love to hike around the lake. There are even places you can go in a wheelchair.

Thank Ron M

I don't know if we just got lucky at this lake, but it was very quiet and uncrowded with very few tourists around. We loved that! We, family of 2 adults and 2 kids, were able to do the almost 3 mile hike around the whole lake easily (it's rated moderately easy) and the views are just beautiful. You can rent a boat as well if you want to. Well worth a visit.

12 of us fished on this beautiful lake and we all agreed, it was amazing. The beauty that surrounds you is breathtaking. The water is clear, clean and beautiful. We all want to check into the rentals near the lake for our next visit.

Convict Lake sits back off the main road but you can park and walk a few feet to the lake.It has awesome back drop scenery and reminds me of a high mountain lake that you would need to hike too.A must stop everytime I'm in the area.
