Avoid at all costs if you want to sleep. There is no type of enforcement and people pretty much do what they want all night; including arriving with full families at 3 am. We were unable to sleep and had to leave early. I'm asking for a refund for the night we paid and did not use as we decided... 更多
Went to the observation point for a look at the lake I used to fish and boat in as a kid. The drought has turned it into a mud puddle. Sad to see. The coves I used to fish in are all empty canyons now.
My wife used to camp and fish by this lake when she was young. Tells me it was a huge lake. Drove by on this trip. Saw a very small pond. The lake is no more.
There is now a pipe to pump the water from the lake side, over a berm, to the dam. The dam looks like an abandoned relic, you can see the bottom of the dam and the footing... concerning really.
We're in a multi-year drought. Almost all of us have noticed, lately, even the water board, and many of us are conserving. Meanwhile, Lake Cachuma has been pumped down to 15% capacity and we are relying on ground water. Now is a good opportunity to view what would normally be underwater. There are campsites or the (former) lake can be... 更多
Nice RV campground with full hook ups and a small store with fair prices and friendly service and a gas station. Lake is virtually empty, just the way it is. We used this RV park as a stop over on the way to San Simeon and it was everything we needed.
Visited Cachuma for the weekend, took advantage of the full hook ups which turned out to be a good idea with the heat. Stayed on the road just down from the pool spot 154. Great spot with a huge oak tree providing lots of shade through out the day and only one neighbor, the other side is a fence, this... 更多
Headed up to Solvang with my wife when we see the Lake Cachuma sign and we think "what the hell! Let's go see this lake!". Park rangers were nice and let us park free for 15 minutes. The camp grounds were packed with tents and trailers but were far enough from the water to Not ruin the view. The lake... 更多
We had to pay a small fee to check out the park, but it was definitely worth it to get in a short, easy hike (we walked about an hour) and to see the wonderful nature center they have here. We had to look for it, because it's kind of behind the general store. There is so much info in... 更多
The area is beautiful, but the campground was horrible - dirty showers, dirty bathrooms, dirty campsites… We tent camp a lot and love to do it, and understand that this is a heavily used campground, but have never stayed in a campground so poorly maintained. When we checked into our campsite, late in the afternoon, there were plastic bags, dirty... 更多
